PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — A Southland man was so excited that his daughter gifted him tickets to Saturday’s U.S.-Mexico soccer game at the Rose Bowl that he began sobbing. His sweet reaction was all caught on video and posted to Twitter, where it’s quickly gone viral.

The footage has already been retweeted more than 22,000 times and favorited more than 34,000 times:

Among those who’ve been touched by the father’s reaction is none other than L.A. Galaxy player Giovani Dos Santos, who shared it on his Twitter page.

The woman who posted the video says it’s the first time her father has been given tickets to a game.

We wonder if this soccer fan will have fans of his own when he shows up to the stadium.
