Vikings Fan Gives Tickets to an Eagles Fan Battling Cancer
This is one of those feel-good stories that inspire you to do an act of kindness yourself. A guy in Minnesota won Super Bowl tickets in a raffle. But, once the Eagles beat the Vikings, he decided he didn't want to go to the big game. He probably could have sold the tickets online for thousands of dollars, but instead, he gave them to a 13-year-old Eagles fan that lives in New Jersey, who has been fighting cancer. The Courier Post reported that Cole Fitzgerald is a huge fan of the Philadelphia Eagles and he has been fighting cancer since he was three. The man who gave him the tickets asked to remain anonymous, and he said he's just glad that someone who wants to see the Eagles play in the Super Bowl, will get a chance to be there in person. The Courier Post did not report who Cole is taking with him to the game, but they did say that he and his guests will not have to worry about airfare or hotel stay either. Delta Airlines is going to fly them round trip at no charge. And they will stay in a Country Inn & Suites that was donated by that hotel chain.
Hats off to you Mr. Minnesota Viking Fan. I hope Cole gets to see his favorite team win the Holy Grail of football.
