Watch: Brother Of Notre Dame G Matt Farrell Surprised Him With Early Return From Afghanistan

Make sure you have tissues ready before watching this video.

Notre Dame junior point guard Matt Farrell's brother Bo is a member of the U.S. Army stationed in Afghanistan. Bo Farrell was apparently scheduled to return to the United States in February.

Well, it turns out he got back a couple of months early, and you know what comes next. Bo surprised his brother after Notre Dame's 77-62 win over Colgate tonight.

Bo recorded a message for Matt which played on the big screen at the Joyce Center, before he appeared and shocked his brother.

Man, that was awesome, and just in time for Christmas.

It has been a breakout year for Farrell on the court, but this will be the memory that can't be topped.
