A 12-year-old from Ohio has a once-in-a-lifetime adventure ahead of him this week. Isaac Mecum is going to the Super Bowl.
The sixth grade Cincinnati Bengals superfan was the lucky recipient of tickets to this weekend’s championship game.
Isaac’s story started with Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay announcing he was giving away a few sets of tickets, WCPO reported.
Along with the tickets, Irsay gave the six winners $10,000 in cash for “expensive LA,” he said on Twitter.
Sadly Isaac didn’t win Irsay’s giveaway but a company from Mason, Ohio, stepped in to make Isaac’s dream come true.
Reliable Transportation Solutions surprised Isaac during school to deliver tickets, a three-night hotel stay and airfare for him and his dad to go to see the Super Bowl in person, WLWT reported.
The tickets aren’t in the nosebleed sections either, they’re in the 200 level with the company. Isaac also scored some new swag and fan experiences, WLWT reported.
Isaac’s dad, Ryan Mecum, told WKRC, “He is invested in a way that is so unique and personal. The fact that we get to go to the game -- it really feels like we got a Willy Wonka ticket.”
Isaac had a different way of describing the feeling.
“I’m going to the Super Bowl. It feels so weird,” he told WKRC.
Isaac’s classmates didn’t miss out on the gifts. They were given Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase shirts, WLWT reported.
