If you don't feel some type of emotion while watching this video, then you are dead inside.

As is customary with nearly any sporting event these days, there is usually a special guest who throws the first pitch, flips the coin before the game, or in the case of hockey, drops the puck. The latter took place over the weekend before a game between the Boston Bruins and the Buffalo Sabres of the National Hockey League.

For this particular game, the special guests were Darren and Lori Jacobs whose son, Lt. Charles Jacobs is currently serving in Afghanistanwith the 182nd infantry of the Massachusetts Army National Guard...or so they thought. Unbeknownst to them, the Bruins flew him in while he was on leave to surprise his parents with the puck at center ice. See the shock on their face for yourself.

Aside from the tear-jerking reunion, did you notice how inhumanly large the Bruins player was standing next to Mrs. Jacobs at the end of the video? What do they feed those guys? Whole cows?
