Young Auburn Fan Surprised With BCS Tickets for Christmas, Acts Accordingly

Thursday December 26th, 2013

Everyone remembers receiving their favorite present ever. For me it was a kiwi green Gameboy when I was 10-years-old. I have no idea where that thing is today, but I'll never forget the joy I felt unwrapping it and promptly jumping headfirst into my Pokemon addiction.

I'm guessing that this young Auburn fan is similarly never going to forget Christmas Day of 2013. As can be seen in the video above, the young boy unwraps an envelope containing tickets to Auburn's BCS Championship match up against Florida State. After coming to the realization that he's going to the game in Pasadena, he, quite appropriately, freaks out.

My favorite part is when the young man is asked "What do you say?" and he responds "Thank you, Daddy." He then immediately corrects himself to say the correct response, which of course is "War Eagle."

While there's no denying that this was a heartwarming moment, I think N64 kid still reigns as the greatest video of a child opening a Christmas present ever.
