Bama fan with Down Syndrome gets best gift ever

Man with Down syndrome gets free tickets to Alabama game

CULLMAN, AL (WBRC) - So what if Alabama is more than a 50-point favorite to beat The Citadel? That doesn’t matter to die-hard Tide fans, especially one in particular.

Eddie Shaddix is 56 years old and has been a Tide fan for more than 40 years. However, the Cullman resident who has Down Syndrome has never seen the Tide play an actual game in person. Until Saturday that is.

A promise made nearly a year ago is finally going to happen. But that is only part of the story. Eddie’s chance to see Bama in person is based on a promise, love and family!
