If you saw Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band perform at the Times Union Center in Albany on Monday then you certainly weren't alone.

Thousands braved the snow and messy winter roads to travel for the show, including one father whose actions after the concert made him a viral sensation Tuesday. even

Patrick Pipino brought his family to the three and a half hour show. Pipino wrote a letter to one of his daughter's schools to excuse her tardiness the following day, according to CBS Albany 6.

Pipino's honest letter to the school is now going viral as many are labeling him as the "cool dad."

Oh well, school can wait. It's Bruce, after all.
