While some Penn State fans will be lining up for their Rose Bowl tickets on Saturday morning, one man just found out he’s going to Pasadena for the game of a lifetime.
YouTuber “MooFasa91” posted a video today of their friend’s father opening a gift from his wife. The description reads, “My friends dad has always wanted to go to the Rose Bowl. His favorite team, Penn State, is playing in it this year. His wife surprised him wife tickets.”
The Penn State fan in the video opens up a box and pulls out a glass bowl filled with roses. At first, he seems a little confused, so some off-screen voices ask him, “What is it?”
He responds, “I don’t know, it’s a rose bowl. What the hell is it?” and the realization sets in. The man bursts into tears of pure joy as his wife hugs him and tells him that they are in fact going to the Rose Bowl in January.
