This is incredible. These Make A Wish videos always get me because they clearly mean so much to these kids. It’s also great to see pro athletes humanized and show how big a role they play in the lives of kids. Like it or not, athletes are role models and the ones in these Make A Wish videos always live up to their billing. What makes this Make A Wish so special though is they actually let the kid in the game. Granted it was a friendly and he only played like thirty seconds, but imagine the memories this kid will have for the rest of his life. A brave kid such as him deserved this and I find myself becoming a Seattle Sounder fan just because of how well they enacted this scenario.
