Video: Seahawks fan surprises his mammy with Super Bowl tickets

We doubt this lad will have to do his own ironing for quite some time…

Mike Harris’ mom is a big Seattle Seahawks fan and when we say ‘big’ be mean MASSIVE. She absolutely loves the Seahawks and has done since 1976, but due to certain life events (the birth of Mike being one pretty big one) she has missed out on some pretty big Seahawks games over the years.

However, that’s about to change this year, as Mike recently surprised his mom with tickets to see them take on the Denver Broncos in the NFL’s biggest game this coming February.

Mike has explained about his mom’s history as a Seahawks fan in detail over on YouTube (check it out here), but this is how he managed to bag some of the most coveted tickets in America…

“It was Super Bowl time once again, and the thoughts came back that it was time to find a way to go! My parents and I looked at it, and realized pretty quickly, that there was no way to make it happen financially. It was just too expensive, and with my sister, and my own weddings coming up this year, it just didn't seem meant to be.

“A week later I found myself reading a headline on Bing about the falling prices of Super Bowl tickets, a surprising situation attributed to cold and cross-country travel difficulties. Naturally I figured I'd take a look and price the whole thing out. PrimeSport.com, tenth row tickets for $1000 cheaper than a week earlier...

“Delta flights in and out of JFK with seats available for a manageable price... A hotel less than three miles from the stadium for a half-decent price... I texted my dad at 9:55am Pacific time and he texted back four minutes later. We decided to pull the trigger and not tell her until the tickets came.

“As I was purchasing flights with my fiancé Sarah, my best friend's wife Jessica walked in and we started scheming to get Jesse (my best friend from Kindergarten to today) in on the action. Moments later he walked in and we hit him with the idea, and he loved it.

“Thanks to a random headline I saw out of the corner of my eye after giving up hope, myself, essentially my mom's second son since I was five years old who she rarely gets to see anymore, and most importantly mom herself are heading to see the Seahawks play in the Super Bowl.

“Mom was there for the send-off of the Seahawks in person, with no clue of what was coming. She came to my house to see me and my dogs, and the FedEx guy arrived and I signed for the package. I opened it, and handed it over to her.

“Thirty years after she skipped their welcome home for my sake, I was able to return the favour in the biggest way I could ever think of. I'm excited to go see the game, but there was nothing more meaningful than to see my mom's reaction that I've shared in the video [sic].”
