Who is Santa Claus? Our guess is Sam Acho

December 24, 2012|By Houston Mitchell

OK, it's Christmas Eve, so it's time to smile. And what better way to smile than watching a child receive an amazing present from a 6-foot-3, 257-pound Santa Claus?

The Arizona Cardinals are near the end of a disappointing 5-10 season, but that didn't stop linebacker Sam Acho from brightening the day of one young Cardinals fan.

Spotting a kid in the front row of the stand by the Arizona sideline, Acho walks over and hands the young boy one of his gloves. As you can see from the video above, the kid's reaction is one of amazement, as he high-fives Acho and then runs up to his mom to show her the best present ever.

For a moment, you will feel like a kid again while watching it.

Well done, Sam Acho. You brought Christmas a little early to one child, and made everyone else who sees it feel a little better about humanity.
