A devoted son wanted to give back to his dad, deciding to shower him with gifts to the theme of his favorite NFL team.
First, a hat and then a signed jersey. Both were received with the excitement one would expect from a fan of several decades.

"Whaaaat!?" he said upon being delivered the signed Bengals jersey.
"For the first time, my dad gets to wear a Bengals NFL signed jersey and a Bengals hat," Brain D of Connecticut wrote in the video.
But that wasn't all, the son going by the username Brian D on YouTube presented his father with tickets.

Disbelief and tears followed.
"It's overwhelming," the dad said.

On reddit, David D., under the username webdevbrian, wrote when he moved out on his own and later married, the appreciation he felt for his parents made him realize "it's an underestimate to say the amount of pride and happiness I have to call him my father."
"My dad didn't have nearly as many opportunities as I did as a kid, and being able to do this for him is huge," he continued.
