LIFE long fan of the San Jose Sharks, 18-yr-old, Sam Tageson signed a ‘One Day Contract’. Sam has had a heart syndrome since birth and today received possibly the most heart felt and genuine gift a fan could ever dream of coming true.
He was given the opportunity by the Sharks Foundation and Make A Wish Foundation to get suited up with his beloved team and skate out onto the Ice. He was able to practice with the team earlier in the day before watching from the bench as the Sharks came out for a pre-game skate. He stood with his favorite players as the national anthem rung out around SAP Center. The crowd gave him a standing ovation. Overwhelmed with emotion, Sam waved to the crowd before heading back down the players tunnel. All the while, the players were up standing to acknowledge their favorite fan.
Watching this video is one of the best professional sporting moments the world could see. Sam Tageson you strong, brave boy… We salute you son.
