Seahawk Fan, Superbowl tickets


Son of the year? Probably. Either way, this video will warm the cold cockles of your heart. (We'll pause here in case you want to make a joke about the word "cockles.")

Mike Harris' mom has been a Seattle Seahawks fan since 1976. And in 1983, she planned to welcome her team back to Seattle after they lost in the AFC Championship game. Unfortunately, she was six months pregnant with Mike, and she wasn't able to see her team return home. So 30 years later, he decided to make up for that one time his fetus-self kept her from her beloved Seahawks.

So he bought her tickets to this year's Super Bowl game, where Seattle will face the Denver Broncos. And he filmed the moment his mother realized what her son did for her, and her reaction will make you blubber like a baby and then give you the urge to call up your mother. She might scold you for never getting her Super Bowl tickets, but she'll still appreciate the phone call.

And in case you didn't know, Super Bowl tickets, hotel and flights to New York are crazy expensive! Thousands and thousands of dollars. So, you know, this was no small gesture.

"Thirty years after she skipped their welcome home for my sake, I was able to return the favor in the biggest way I could ever think of," Mike wrote. "I'm excited to go see the game, but there was nothing more meaningful than to see my mom's reaction that I've shared in the video."
