You're making more of this being about Bama than the story itself. Sure, tickets to the BCSNC has a major part in the story. However, before it made it to ESPN the video had already gone viral. It was shown on the Today show, CNN picked it up for their morning broadcast, ABC did for Good Morning America. It made the rounds through Fox News and landed on the front page of Yahoo, was featured on the Huffington Post...the list goes on. It was a Christmas story. That's it. It just so happened that the story about a son giving tickets to his father. Hell, the father was happy to get the hat the tickets were hidden inside of... If it were Notre Dame, it'd be getting the same play. If it were LSU, it would be getting the same play. It was just a good video celebrating the joy of Christmas. To make it into something else is...well, "Grinchish." Watch it. Set aside the rivalry a minute and just enjoy a holiday moment.
