Excerpt from TheBlaze

Notre Dame basketball junior point guard Matt Farrell wasn’t expecting to see his brother, Army 1st Lt. Bo Farrell, until February because Bo has been deployed to Afghanistan since May. But after a home victory over Colgate University Monday night, Matt got the surprise of a lifetime.
Following their win, a video message of Bo speaking appeared on the Fighting Irish’s scoreboard. Bo told his brother — who had just racked up 13 points and seven assists in the win — how proud of him he was.
That’s when the camera panned out to show that Bo wasn’t speaking from Afghanistan but from Notre Dame’s basketball arena instead.
