    A Rhode Island woman celebrating her birthday in Atlanta was surprised on live television with two tickets to the Super Bowl.

    Breni Pelletier -- decked head to toe in Patriots gear -- was part of a crowd watching the "Today" show's live broadcast when anchor Craig Melvin pulled out two giant tickets.

    Pelletier said she was going to watch the game at a bar popular with Patriots fans.

    "I have a better idea, how about you go to the Super Bowl?" Melvin said. "I think that would be a better place to watch the game."

    "Oh my god!" Pelletier screamed, hugging Melvin.

    "Any woman that wears a onesie on live, national television deserves to go to the Super Bowl," Melvin said.

    The New England Patriots are going for their sixth Super Bowl victory. They face the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
