Many professional athletes are active on social media. But how often do they actually respond to fans, let alone requests from fans to meet them?
Jim Love, a Minnesota Vikings fan, reached out to the Packers' organization via Twitter in hopes of making things up to his daughter (who is "obsessed with the Packers") after a flight cancellation caused his family to miss the Packers' Family Night at Lambeau Field.

I'll hook you up on Monday. I'm not sure if practice will still be open but if it is I gotcha. If not we can grab a bite together. https://t.co/CqhuxUdaFX

A father himself, Bennett held true to his promise to meet Love's daughter and even rode his bike with her and her cousin outside of Lambeau before practice.

Putting aside rivalries for the sake of making a special memory for a young kid, it's social media -- and football -- at their finest.
