Son Makes Dad Tear Up as He Surprises Him with Bengals Tickets

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffOctober 9, 2013

Sons who are looking to impress your football-fan dads, there's a new measuring stick. 

According to this video, this dad has been a Cincinnati Bengals fan for 40 years but has never seen the team play in person. Now thanks to a wonderful gift from his son, he'll get to see the team take on the Jets on Oct. 27. 

The dad receives a couple other Bengals gifts before the grand finale of the tickets, which happens at around the 2:05 mark. The high point of the video comes when the dad claims that this is the first time he has actually held Bengals tickets in his hand.

This harkens memories to the son who bought his dad tickets to see Alabama play in the BCS National Championship last year. 

Hat tip to Diehard Sport for the find.
