While you grow into adulthood and you — well, most of us — understand that pro athletes are just ‘people’ like the rest of us, there is still something about your childhood heroes you never get over.

I hope that made sense … It will after you watch the video below.

Kolt Kyler is the boy in the video below, a farm kid from Pierceton, Indiana. His heroes? The Cubs.

Watch his heart explode after his dad surprises him with a pair of tickets to Wrigley Field, rewarding him for his hard work in the classroom and on the farm. It’s basically the best video you’ll watch all day.

I had the same reaction around the same age when I got tickets to see Christina Aguilera.

But of course the fun didn’t stop there for Kolt. The Cubs players saw the tweet and have started reaching out.

Dammit, how can Cardinals fans root against the Cubs when they’re all good dudes.
