Monday's game between the Memphis Grizzlies and the Phoenix Suns had serious playoff implications, but it meant a whole lot more than just basketball to one family.

Army Specialist Jamie Bledsoe returned from his deployment to surprise his son at the game. Eight-year-old Logan Bledsoe had no idea what he was getting himself into when he participated in a contest that required him to wear a blindfold.

Once the blindfold came off, the emotions were tough to contain.
