The early frontrunner for 'Son of the Year' has to be this Seahawks fan, who surprised his mom with Super Bowl tickets this week. Not only did he surprise his mom with Super Bowl tickets, but he filmed the surprise and then uploaded to YouTube so we could all enjoy the moment along with his mom. Even the family dog makes a cameo.  

Here's a little backstory: The mom is a lifelong Seahawks fan and wanted to attend the team's first NFC Championship game in 1983, but she couldn't because she was pregnant with her son. The same son who bought the Super Bowl tickets. Super Bowl XL was out of the budget and the family had no plans to attend this year either, but after Super Bowl ticket prices started falling, the son decided he could afford it. 

The mom's reaction to receiving the tickets is priceless. At one point she says, almost crying, "We can't do this," but they're definitely going to do it. So you better watch out New Jersey because Mom, son and Jesse Martin are headed your way on Saturday.
