Brandon Jacobs fan gets the surprise of a lifetime

A young fan of  ex-Giants player Brandon Jacobs, received a surprise visit from his football favorite. After finding out that Jacobs was leaving the Giants due to financial concerns, 6-year-old Joseph Armento emptied out his piggy ban, sent Jacobs $3.36 and a letter. According to Yahoo! News, nearly four months after the letter was sent, the San Francisco 49ers player surprised Armento with an afternoon of fun and games at a New Jersey bouncehouse.

Remember the adorable little New York Giants fan named Joe who sent the contents of his piggy bank to Brandon Jacobs because “money” was the reason that Jacobs had to leave the Giants? The young fellow got his money back this week, hand-delivered by Jacobs, along with a signed Giants helmet and a bouncy, memorable afternoon with his favorite football player.

Jacobs told Matt Barrow of the Sacramento Bee that he and his son took Joe and his brother out to a bounce house for the afternoon and had a blast.

“It was just us in the whole place and we were just going room to room – just bouncing and flipping all over the place, hitting each other with balls, sweating, our shirts filthy. We were just dirty, stinky boys, you know?”
