Morning links: Two-year-old shreds season ticket money; Utah football Instagram claps back

A Utah football fan had finally saved up the money to pay his mom back for his Utah football season tickets, but he ran into a problem while looking for the envelope — his two-year-old son had shredded the money that was intended to go towards the season tickets, all $1,060 of it.

The tweet garnered attention on Twitter, with many expressing their sympathy, but it looks like there may be a way for the family to recover the money and pay back the mom. According to the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Bureau of Engraving and Printing, in certain cases, damaged currency may be mailed to the U.S. Department of the Treasury, which will send back a check for the damaged amount.

From the U.S. Department of the Treasury's website:

"Include a legible letter stating the estimated value of the currency, your contact information, and an explanation of how the currency became mutilated. The submission should also contain the bank account and routing number for an account of a United States bank. For reimbursement via checks, provide payee and mailing address information."
