WATCH: North Carolina basketball fan brings father to tears with tickets to UNC-Duke game

Virtually all sports fans have a sports bucket list: games or events that they have to see at some point in their lives.

One North Carolina fan is going to cross an item off his bucket list on Feb. 8.

Cody Blankenship tweeted a video of his father unwrapping a gift at his birthday dinner over the weekend and revealing two tickets to the North Carolina-Duke basketball game. In the video, Blankenship’s father appears stunned when he first opens the gift.

“There ain’t no freakin’ way. Are you serious?” he exclaims.

He later says “that’s a bucket list” and appears to tear up in the video. Cody told the Raleigh News & Observer that his father later “bawled at one point.”

Check out the video below:
