The heartwarming moment a hockey player tells his dad he made the Olympics



Now that the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics are just a little over a month away, it’s time to begin our biennial tradition of tearing up to videos of athletes doing…pretty much anything.

Today, that means watching this sweet clip of Milwaukee Admirals hockey player Bobby Butler telling his dad that he’s made the U.S. Olympic team. 

After the clip blew up on Twitter, Butler told WTMJ-TV that he knew he’d want to capture the moment on video. 

“I thought it would be special to tell him at a hockey rink since we’ve been playing so long,” Butler said. “He’s a big teddy bear, so I knew tears would come, but it was special, it’s a video I could give to him and he could show his buddies.” 

That hug! Those cheers! How can you not get emotional? Butler made the right choice.
