With all the turmoil in the political world, sometimes it’s just great to see some unadulterated joy.
11 year old Sam Caruana’s joy over the fried chicken at Chick-Fil-A has now gone viral and is capturing people’s hearts.
Leanne Stuck of WGRZ showed up at the new Cheektowaga, New York Chick-Fil-A location on Wednesday night. People were there, standing out in the cold, because the restaurant promised free Chick-Fil-A for a year to the first 100 people in line.
It was there Stuck found Sam, standing in a Buffalo Bills hoodie in the cold with the others and she reported on how he was one of the lucky 100 to have secured the prize.
11-year-old Sam just won free Chick-fil-A for a year.
I think we can all relate…

“Well, I’m here in the freezing cold getting free chicken sandwiches,” he said. “Because the food tastes great. I mean, it’s chicken, fried chicken, fried chicken. I like fried chicken!”
He instantly became a sensation and the video now has over 9 million views with the tweet gaining 140,000 likes.
People saw an old soul in Sam.

Calling this kid my hero still doesn't even do him justice. Absolute legend.
