And the story that leads to this moment is pretty incredible. It starts with sports writer Jason Elia. He spent $8,000 on two tickets to the game for his football-loving girlfriend. Now she's his ex-girlfriend. Back in November, he found out he had bladder cancer, and when he told his girlfriend, she dumped him. After the break up, she told Jason she still wanted the Super Bowl tickets. He said no way, and set up a contest through his Twitter account. He said he'd give the tickets to whoever got him the most followers on Twitter. Shortly after midnight he announced who won. He has more than 11,000 followers now.
