If you were anywhere on social media on Sunday, you probably heard about the NFL playoff game being shown on Nickelodeon between the Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints.

There was a Spongebob Squarepants-themed pregame show, lots of fun gags and even an animated slime machine for touchdowns.

But for former St. Louis Rams quarterback Kurt Warner, the unique broadcast made for a special family moment.

Warner shared this tweet on Sunday of he and his son, Zach, watching the Nickelodeon broadcast together.

"My son loves @Nickelodeon but has never sat and watched a football game with me UNTIL today... I appreciate Nick introducing our kids to the game in a fun & entertaining way!!," Warner tweeted.

Zack, who is now 31, suffered a traumatic brain injury at four months old and is legally blind. Warner said this Nickelodeon broadcast of the Wild Card game was the first time he and Zack had watched a game together.
