As you're watching the Super Bowl LIII on Feb. 3, keep an eye out for a special member of the Los Angeles Rams in the crowd. No, he won't be playing on the field, but he's definitely considered part of the team. Alfonso Garcia, the Rams' custodian, will get to celebrate game day in Atlanta with his son, thanks to a gift from wide receiver Brandin Cooks.
In a video on Twitter, Brandin presented a shocked Alfonso with two Super Bowl tickets, plus round-trip airfare and hotel accommodations. "On behalf of the team and the organization, we would love to invite you and your son Josh (on) a [round trip] to the Super Bowl to come hang out with us," Brandin said. "You mean so much to us and you know that you're special. What you do around here, and everything that you do, does not go unnoticed."
"This is a dream come true, man," Alfonso responded emotionally. "Ever since I was a little boy." Watch the touching moment above. No matter who you're rooting for, it's easy to be a fan of thoughtful gifts like these.ADVERTISEMENT
