MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A viral photo from the national championship game between Clemson and Alabama brought some unexpected attention to a local financial planner and his son.
Scott Pyle and his son Dylan were photographed at the game holding up posters. Dylan's read, "Sorry Mom, I spent my tuition to be here." While Scott's simply said, " Sorry Honey, I let him!"
The image garnered thousands of shares on social media.
It was originally posted by ESPN Upstate on Facebook before the game, taking off to twitter, Instagram and beyond in just a matter of hours.
"It really was to commemorate being at the national championship for the first time since 1981 with Clemson," Pyle said. "Here's my son going to Clemson my oldest daughter is a graduate of Clemson and we just wanted something to commemorate it. Who knew that it would do what its done."
 Pyle works in Myrtle Beach.
 He said he received numerous texts and calls as the photo of the duo was shared thousands of time.
 "Two hours later I'm still getting things coming in from Facebook, Twitter, text, email, and every time another camera would come around everyone would storm over the top of us," Pyle said. "What a blast. We had a great time."
 Pyle said the idea behind the posters came from his wife.
 He says the experience made for a special moment that he and his son will never forget.
