My takeaway is different. It's 3+ minutes of publicity for A&M's program on a personal level to an audience other than ESPN. There are firms that establish values of publicity. I'd like to see their evaluation of this air time.

No doubt. She played sports at some level.

I am so glad it was aired nationally. It was an incredible display of love and devotion and it's emotional because we all want that in our own lives. Wishing Seth and Rachel nothing but the best.

Awesome. Thanks for sharing that. That's the kind of publicity you can't buy. For the moment, the Aggies are indeed America's team. Wow.

From the marketing side this is gold, good press about a good situation

I've gotten lots of positive comments from co-workers outside Texas that have commented on that video.

It is awesome. It really personalizes what the athletes accomplish.

You'd have to be stone-hearted not to find that an awesome moment, regardless of your fan affiliation.

Saw this on YouTube and I think it's great. Their reaction was exactly what I'd hoped it was going to be when I first watched.

Great wholesome moment from a football game that so many people can relate to and it was our school.

Gigem!

That's women vs men. I'm definitely like the dude in white: c'mon boy, make the kick. Alright! Let's go drink a beer.

I get mama and wifey's reaction, but crocodile tears on the Today show are weird.

Women generally experience strong emotions and empathize strongly as well. Calling them crocodile tears suggests you don't understand that distinction or you're playing your man card for points here.

I'll offer that I think it's weird, too, but my wife cries on cue at the tiniest emotional moments in movies and then tries to hide it.

Eh that's a pretty broad generalization, I am a straight guy who loves sports, the gym, hunting, fishing, BBQ and alot of things that are generally considered manly. However, I had some tears watching this for a few reasons:

  • You can hear the love in her voice
  • You can hear the stress, knowing that she is about to have to be a very supportive partner whether celebrating or providing a shoulder to cry on
  • If that was either of my boys, I would feel the weight of the moment, the hours preparing and practicing and this is likely the moment he will be remember for, this will be his legacy, in his mid 20s a lot of his legacy was defined in that moment

I was thinking the same. This is a life altering moment. Glad the laces were out.

I thought she was very gracious. Don't be the reason others don't like Aggies.

I'm telling you, that kick was headed left....until it was headed right. I don't know what made that movement happen and I'm glad it did.

Go take a look at his field goal in the first quarter and tell me what you see there. Then review the game winner.

Clutch as a son-of-a-gun.

Last, go listen to his presser interview. I believe that's the answer.

I've had people at work that aren't even football fans told me they saw that video, and I'm in California!
In my experience, there's no such thing as luck.

That video gives me the chills and has me teary eyed, and I'm more alpha than most of you pot bangers.

She might be a sip but I can't imagine her not having a connection to A&M, given that her GRANDFATHER IS KIND OF A BIG DEAL HERE.

As a straight bigblack male i can say that the tears come a little easier when the mental health issues run deep and strong

I think it's funny that everyone watches his wife's reaction and doesn't notice that mom did not watch the actual kick. She spent that whole time sitting with her eyes closed and mouthing a silent prayer.
