At first, Don Buckhannan, a devoted Alabama fan, was overjoyed simply to get a Bear Bryant-style hat from his family for Christmas. 

Hey, it beats socks.

But then the Oxford, Ala., man looked inside the best gift-wrapping ever and found two very expensive (the cheapest on Stubhub are $979 each) tickets to see the Crimson Tide play Notre Dame in the BCS championship game on Jan. 7 from his son Daniel.

Dad’s reaction is Roll-Tidelicious.
