Grab a Tissue Before Reading This Incredible Sportsmanship Story From NFC Championship
A Green Bay Packer's fan recently posted a "thank you" note to Seattle fans on Craigslist after the NFC championship game on Sunday. It was by a father who took his young son to the game to help him forget about his best friend who'd recently died.
The 10-year-old boy from Orlando had lost his dog Boo the week before. A friend offered the man two tickets to the game, so they bought tickets and arranged lodging to go cheer on their beloved Green Bay Packers to cheer the boy up. Then THIS happened:
My son was sitting right next to a young girl of 12. They talked and seemed to be having a great time. Well we all know that the Packers played a great game but a win was not to be had. After Seattle scored in overtime I noticed the young girl was crying and still sitting in her seat. Her father talked to her and gave her a hug. When we were leaving I asked the father if the girl was crying for joy by the win and to my shock he told me no, she was crying because she wanted the Packers to win because she knew my son had lost his dog and she thought he needed this more than she did. I kept this to myself on the flight home. While my son was having our dinner meal he looked at me and said he was glad that Seattle had won. I was surprised and ask him why. He looked at me and told me the girl sitting next to him had lost her cat to a dog attack only the day before and he wanted her to have something to help her feel better. Football will never be the same to me. So Thank You Seattle for the great game, and Thank You God for putting so much love for others in these two young people."
