Thomas posted video on Twitter that shows him pretending to be a member of the team with a gym towel draped around his head.


But when he removed the towel, his family was brought to tears after realizing it was Thomas. "I missed you all so much, " said Thomas as he hugged his children.

Thomas said he wanted to thank his family for their sacrifice during his time away.
