Father Surprised by Son Goes to First Bengals Game
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Sunday's win certainly pleased Bengals fans, but for one father it was a day he'll never forget.
Local 12 News told you about Steve Kinney from New York earlier this month, when his son Brian surprised him with tickets to Sunday's game as a birthday gift.
Brian posted a video of the surprise to the site Reddit. The video went viral and some very important people heard about it and made today extra special for his dad.
Before the game, Domata Peko's wife and some of the other families of Bengals players pitched in and gave Steve a jersey and a gift card to the pro shop. "Receiving the gifts pushed me to the edge. But realizing that it was about the love that's what pushed me over the edge. That's where the emotion came in", says Steve.
Brian says, "to do something like this for my dad is intense. I knew it was going to be intense for me but I knew it was going to be drastically more intense for my father just because this was something that I knew he was able to pull off when us kids were growing up".
The team also bumped Steve and his son's seats up to the front row of the end zone. In his more than 40 years of being a fan, Steve had never been to a Bengals game.
