    A little boy from Pittsburgh attending each and every home game with his grandmother, and they made a pact to go to the Superbowl together if they were selected to get tickets. Well, the other day, they got the letter they had been waiting for, and recieved their two tickets to Detroit.

    Now, the little boy has an Uncle who is getting sent to Iraq at the end of February, and guess what the kid did? Yep, gave his Uncle his Superbowl ticket!:thumbsup: What a kid!

    Saw this on a Pittsburgh new channel last night, but couldn't find an article. Anyway, great kid!

    That is an awsome kid. That shows a lot about his upbringing, great parents.

    Well this child reminds me of a child who had good raisin and was taught to think of others before himself.
    What a kid! I wish I had a superbowl ticket, just so I could give it to him.
    Well done little man.

    Keith, I thought the same thing. Hopefully someone who does hear's this story, and helps him out with a ticket of his own. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if someone from the Steeler's camp hooks him up.:)

    Someone brought that kid up the right way! I hope somehow he ends up going to the Superbowl anyway!
