DOTD: Penn State Fan Sheds Tears Of Joy After Wife Surprises Him With Rose Bowl Tickets

Update 8:19 p.m.: James Franklin caught wind of the Becky Yockey’s Rose Bowl surprise to her husband and decided to give him a call!

Not only did Franklin thank him for his support of the team, he’s sending the Yockeys a care package full of Penn State apparel and items that are sure to have Dean looking sharp when he heads to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl!

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.
