Soldier Surprises 8-Year-Old Son During Phoenix Suns Game

Tuesday April 15th, 2014

Although the Phoenix Suns lost their final home game of the season against the Memphis Grizzlies, which ended their chance to make the playoffs, there was most definitely a silver lining for the fans in attendance. That silver lining is Logan Bledsoe, an 8-year-old Suns fan who was surprised at mid-court during a timeout by his father, who had been deployed in Afghanistan for 9 months.

Soldiers surprising their family at live sporting events is by no means a new occurrence, but it's something that certainly never gets old.
