College football is just a game, except when it’s not.
The sport, which commands legions of fans across the country, has a way of bringing friends and family together in ways that others might never have expected.
We saw that when an Alabama fan (he’s wearing a 2015 national championship hat) was nearly reduced to tears when his daughter informed him of his Fathers’s Day gift: He will attend his first-ever Alabama game, against Mississippi State, in the 2016 game.

The June 19 tweet shows just how important the game can be to some, even beyond simple wins and losses.
Needless to say, this father will likely remember his Father’s Day gift for quite some time.
