An extremely blessed dad and a hardcore Alabama football fan received the best Christmas present ever and his reaction was worthy of the surprise too! Daniel Buckhannan surprised his father with a ticket to see the Crimson Tide play Notre Dame on January 7th 2013 in the BCS National Championship game in Miami. Just to give you an idea, the tickets to that are extremely rare finds and the lowest one costs a little less than $1000.
The ticket was hidden inside a fedora hat given to him in a gift bag. The old man was already delighted to receive the same type of hat that legendary Alabama coach Bear Bryant used to wear as a Christmas gift, but then his son told him to look inside the hat for the bigger surprise.
His children tipped him off to the surprise by asking him the size of the fedora. When he checked its size, he sees the prized BCS title ticket. His reaction to the gift is extraordinary. No words can actually describe his glee.
"We going to the game, Pop! We going to the game!"
The description accompany Daniel Buckhannan’s YouTube video reads "Was blessed to be able to give my dad a ticket to the championship game."
