If you haven’t seen this by now... grab some tissue paper.

NCAA Basketball: Colgate at Notre Dame Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish basketball team was looking for some good news tonight after suffering two losses. They were looking to get back on track against the Colgate Raiders, and when the game was all said and done, the Irish did just that.

There was something else that got back on track this night, and that was some honest to goodness bro love.

Matt Farrell was expecting his brother, First Lieutenant Bo Farrell (R), who had been serving with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan to return in February. It appears that plan was all a ruse, and we get one of those reunions that we all love and can’t stop watching.

Matt had 13 points and 7 assists in 37 minutes of play, so he was probably pretty tired after the game, but you can only imagine the type of adrenaline boost he got once he saw his brother walking onto the court.

I feel great just watching this. LET’S GO CHRISTMAS THE TOWN!
