WAPATO, WA - Some may consider a Wapato woman one of the greatest moms in the world.

Thanks to Legends Casino, she won two tickets to the Super Bowl but she gave them away to her two unsuspecting sons.

"Excited, didn't believe it. Tears," said Jeanna Hernandez.

More than a week ago, Jeanna's name was picked from a drawing of more than 100 people at Legends Casino. She walked away with two tickets to the Super Bowl.

Jeanna said as she excitedly watched the Seahawks trump the 49ers in the playoffs, she knew exactly what she was going to do with those golden tickets.

"I couldn't leave one behind so that was the next best thing was giving it to both of them," said Hernandez.

"I couldn't tell if she was being for real because she was kind of in tears, and I still didn't believe it until she had sent me the actual ticket in a picture," said Mark Sanchez, one of Jeanna's son. "It was like trippy, once in a lifetime opportunity. It's still unbelievable. I won't believe it until I get on the plane."

Being the great mom she is, Jeanna said she wants her two boys, Mark and Matthew, to experience the once in a lifetime opportunity.

She said she'll enjoy the game with her grandsons, hoping to catch a glimpse of her boys cheering on their home team.

Sanchez said he's so grateful and excited to watch his favorite team play in the big game. He said it's even better that he gets to share the experience with his little brother.
