Father and daughter share a special NCAA bond that included a stop-motion birthday present this year
Jared Jacobs, of Boise, ID used legos and the art of stop motion to re-create Villanova's 2016 March Madness win. Jared's daughter, Jovie was born at the beginning of March Madness and the two have bonded every year since. What's amazing is that Jared created this as a birthday present for Jovie this year. Stop-motion is labor intensive and takes quite a bit of time. Clearly the love this father has for his little girl is strong. Jared chatted with ABC News and noted that it took nearly 40 hours of work to create this animation. Watch the video he posted to his Instagram page below and hop on over to the read the full ABC News article here.
My oldest daughter was born right at the beginning of March Madness. I remember watching non-stop basketball in the hospital and the first few days of bringing her home. Maybe that's part of the reason her and I have shared a special bond when it comes to the NCAA Tournament. Last year she picked @novambb to win the whole thing and I picked @unc_basketball I'll never forget watching her reaction to the final 10 seconds of that game. This year for her birthday I wanted to do something special for it. So I told her I was going to make a Lego re-enactment video dedicated to her. Happy Birthday Jovie! I hope this year is as magical as last year.
