Gift from Seattle Seahawks brings fan to tears

The Seattle Seahawks hook kindhearted fan up with team signed helmet

Whether you like them or not, a gift from the Seattle Seahawks to a fan was pretty touching, so much so it brought the man to tears.

A fan had a chance encounter with the girlfriend of running back Robert Turbin this season, and he lent his Seahawks jacket to her for a picture.

To thank him for the gesture, she told him she would get him an autograph. But, through the failures of technology, it didn’t happen.

The fan was heartbroken until a box from the team recently arrived.

The young father is brought to tears by the gift from the team. The video has more than a million views on YouTube.
