One father got a little more than he expected this Christmas when his son surprised him with a ticket to a big game.

As he opened his gift, Dad looked fairly pleased to receive a hat that looked like one former University of Alabama football head coach Bear Bryant would wear. There was a little more it than that. His son prompted him to look inside, where he found a ticket to the 2013 BCS National Championship game between Alabama and Notre Dame.

His sheer joy at the chance to attend the game (taking place in Miami next month) is a sight to behold.
