A 10-year-old Dallas Cowboys fan wearing a San Francisco 49ers jersey walked into a GameStop in Virginia while his grandma was at a store next door.
The boy walked out with a brand new Xbox One purchased by two NFL players from the Cowboys’ longtime rivals, the Washington Redskins…all because the child was wearing the jersey of No. 7, Colin Kaepernick.
In comments posted to Facebook, Saundra Watts said her grandson Jaden walked into the GameStop while she was next door at a makeup store. He then ran back saying some guys wanted to buy him an Xbox One.
“So I go next door and as I am walking over there I am thinking what pervert wants to buy my grandson an Xbox,” Saundra wrote on Facebook. “I am thinking he is going to be in for a rude awakening when I bust through these doors. (I am an advocate for abused and neglected kids).”
But the two men were Washington players Keith Marshall and Rob Kelley. Jaden said they complimented his jersey, noticed he was asking about an Xbox for his birthday and offered to buy it for him.
“I nor my grandson (sic) had a clue who they were,” Saundra wrote. “They now have 2 fans for life.”
Jaden told the Washington Post that although he’s a Cowboys fan, he liked the 49ers and Kaepernick because of his decision to kneel during the national anthem last season calling attention to police brutality and social justice.
A GameStop bystander who was moved by the moment was the first to post about it on Facebook.
The boy’s grandma, Saundra Watts, caught wind of Snapp’s post and wrote the following in the comment section:
GameStop also marked the moment in a Twitter thanks to the Redskins players.
