So this just happened. Our Minnesota Vikings just lost to the Philadelphia Eagles 38-7 in a heartbreaking, gut-wrenching loss on the heels of one of the greatest game-winning plays in NFL history. It's a big blow. But we are Vikings fans, we will bounce back! Tomorrow is a new day, next year is a new year, and we will NEVER stop loving our team!
But on top of that, seeing photos and videos of some Eagles fans bombarding Vikings fans with beer cans, insults and being told by police to leave the game for their protection, that was even more heartbreaking. It would be easy for us to get mad, easy for us to welcome them to our home town with that same level of respect, but that's NOT us.
We have the best fans! We are truly a fan base with integrity, a fan base with a heart. A fan base who last week raised more than $200k for the opposing team's kicker.
SO LET'S DO IT AGAIN! Let's channel all of this heartbreak and insults and negative energy and turn the ultimate cheek. Let's welcome the Eagles to our house in two weeks by presenting them with a great big check supporting their charitable foundation, a great cause that has served more than a million low-income children in the Philadelphia area. Let's raise $38,000 ($1,000 for every point that they scored against us ;))
Let's show them what this fan base is made of and welcome them with our version of some Brotherly Love!
Skol and God bless!
