As social media floods with grinchy stories of ungrateful gift recipients, it's a pleasure to see this Alabama dad enjoy both the simple hat he got for Christmas, and the real present hidden in the brim.

When YouTube user Daniel Buckhannan handed his father, Don, a fedora for Christmas -- of the kind legendary coach Bear Bryant used to wear -- dad seemed pretty excited. But the real surprise comes when his son asks him to check out the hat size, where he's hidden two tickets to the BCS Championship Game between Alabama and Notre Dame.

"Holy Moly!" Don exclaims, rendered nearly speechless. "We're going to the game, Pop," his son says.
