Even though Alfonso Cook is not on the field with the Los Angeles Rams, the football players still consider him a part of the team.
Cook, who works at the L.A. Memorial Stadium, always keeps the facility “in tip top shape” for the footballers. So as a means of showing some love to their beloved colleague, the Rams decided to surprise him with two tickets to the upcoming Super Bowl game against the New England Patriots.
In a video that was uploaded to the team’s Twitter page, Garcia can be seen walking into one of the stadium offices – and he is confused when he is greeted by Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks.
“One of the guys that works here, he said the general manager, Les, wanted to speak to me,” Garcia later told CBS Los Angeles. “And, well it made me a little nervous because that’s not an office you really want to get called into.”
Upon sensing Garcia’s anxiety, Cooks laughs and says there is no reason to be nervous. Instead, he just wanted to give Garcia a gift.
“On behalf of the team and organization, we would love to invite you and your son, Josh, round trip [to the] Super Bowl,” Cooks said. “You mean so much to us and everything that you do does not go unnoticed.”
Garcia is overwhelmed. Fighting back tears, he says that he has always wanted to go to the Super Bowl since he was a little boy – and now, he will be able to bring his own son to the game as well.
“Oh my god, are you serious?” Garcia says emotionally. “This is a dream come true.”
“From the bottom of my heart thank you, I love you guys. To have this and be with you guys in something so special like this. Wow, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you. Everybody.”
