This story has sort of been everywhere the last few day. You might have seen it in your feed.
A coal miner in Kentucky had been wanted to take his 3-year-old son to a Kentucky basketball game and finally found the time last weekend. The only thing was he had to go straight from work in his dirty work clothes and covered head to tow in coal dust.
The photo of him and his son is now going viral you can see it here
The University of Kentucky basketball team was so was touched by the story that they have reached out and offered free tickets to the man and his son for any game this season. They will be attending a game in January against Kansas. When I’m sure he will have more time to plan and get ready around his work schedule.
A lot of the local businesses in the area have also offered his family free meals and a hotel room for that night. So nice! I love how sports brings people together like this.
