An Iron Bowl prank turned into a 7-year-old Bama boy hitting the Roll Tide lottery, thanks to the University of Alabama athletic department, which caught wind of the joke pulled on the boy during Saturday’s rivalry game.
Bama fan Cody Kirk posted a Twitter video of his son, Brody, crying tears of joy after Alabama’s first of many touchdowns en route to a 42-13 win. At some point during the game, someone called the Kirk house and tried to pull a fast one on Brody.
His mother, Brooke, picks up the story from there and explains how the prankster helped Brody hit the Tide lottery.
“As many of you know, someone played a mean trick on our family a few days ago pretending to be an employee with UA and invited Brody to come meet the team and Coach Saban. The University of Alabama Athletic Director, Greg Byrne, found out about it and talked to Cody Kirk.
“It upset him very much and he asked for our address so he could send Brody a surprise. This ‘Bama box’ came in the mail today! He included a football signed by Coach Saban and Mrs.Terry and an autographed picture of Coach. Such a blessing. Brody was so excited and so incredibly thankful for this sweet gift! This was just another amazing example of how God works all things for the good of those who love Him.
“He took this cruel prank that someone played on our seven year old and turned it into a blessing that made my sweet boy so happy. We didn’t avenge. God did. He got the last laugh and we got a Bama blessing. God bless and roll tide!”
There you go, a bright moment during a dark year. Brody even scored a Miss Terry autograph. Look at that haul! Think back to when you were seven and what this would’ve meant to your life. Absolutely priceless. Take that, prankster!
I would really like to thank @Greg_Byrne, Coach Saban & Mrs. Terry, they have made my son’s whole year! We really appreciate the @AlabamaFTBL care package! Brody (7) will remember this forever! I’ve had a rough few days, and this made it all worth it! #RollTide #KindnessMatters pic.twitter.com/Z01kDCvfdQ

Weird story. They put out a video of their son excited about a touchdown and then immediately got a call which was apparently from an unknown number and they answered the call?? Really? Are they psychos? Apparently they are because they let the person talk to their 7 year old or something and—low and behold—the weird caller turned out to be a creep…that talked to their son…or something.
I don’t know. It all sounds suspicious and faked. Also, I only skimmed the article, so maybe I missed something.
It could’ve been a scam. I’m trying to go into the end of the year thinking the best and that this story all adds up.
