Many times we forget the amount of sacrifices that parents make for their children in order to see them happy. Childhood is probably the stage where memories become valuable moments of a birthday, a family picnic, a walk in the park with your pet or a visit to a museum or football stadium.
However, we hardly care about how much parents have to go through or do to achieve it, the long and heavy hours of work in the office, field or home, do not matter as long as they see the children happy.
The things that are achieved thanks to effort and dedication, sometimes have their reward. Like the case of a family from Kentucky, who went viral after a post on Twitter. With almost no information, the image of a child next to his father during a basketball game has caught the attention of thousands of users, although it is something that is constantly seen, since a game is usually the perfect time to share the side of the united families watching their belowed team, this time, the difference is that the father was completely dirty and apparently had just gotten off work.
During the college game between the University of Kentucky Blue-Whites in Pikeville, USA, played at the Appalachian Wireless Arena on a Saturday, UK head basketball coach John Calipari noticed something interesting in the crowd and photographed it to share it on their networks. The image went viral and it was immediately revealed that the father is a miner in a coal mine and after a long working day, he almost ran to the Arena to meet his family, his wife and his little son. . Furthermore, he also added that although he doesn’t know exactly who they are, he intends to find them and give them tickets to be treated like VIP fans.
Mollie McGuire, the wife of the perfect dad, named Michael, took to Twitter to respond to the post so she could get in touch with the team. Through Facebook, she said that Michael usually starts his day at 4:45 a.m. to go to work at Excel Mining, and just that day he did not have time to go home to clean himself, so he made a great effort and He headed straight to the game to be by his little boy’s side.
