Roger Goodell surprises Ravens fan and doctor with Super Bowl tickets during NFL Draft

Imagine working another long, Saturday shift at the hospital in the midst of a pandemic, and get a FaceTime call from NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell.

That's what happened to Ravens fan and Doctor at Baltimore's LifeBridge Health, Dr. Hazim El-Haddad.

Goodell called El-Haddad during the Draft Saturday to thank him for working on the frontlines during the coronavirus pandemic and to reward his sacrifice with tickets to Super Bowl LV in Tampa, FL.

Since he was in the middle of his shift, El-Haddad almost missed the call, telling Goodell he couldn't talk at the moment before realizing who he was.

His reaction, while wearing a Ravens hat, was priceless.

El-Haddad had submitted a video of himself for the NFL's Inner Circle initiative, cheering for the Ravens and how the team has provided a welcome distraction for him and his patients, but he wasn't expecting Goodell to thank him personally, or to receive Super Bowl tickets.

"You made my day," El-Haddad said in the video. "I had a really rough day today too, working at the hospital. So this means a lot."
