Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament: Alan Page Advances

Malcolm Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

As it turns out, ladies and gentlemen, our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament will not have four #1 seeds in the Final Four. It will, however, have one of the famed Purple People Eaters vying for the title of the finest to ever wear the purple and gold.

Alan Page fought his way past Fran Tarkenton to find a place in the Final Four of our tournament. When the votes were all counted up, The Honorable Justice Page had accumulated 140 "recs" from our readers, while Sir Francis managed to rack up 101 "recs." A lot of people felt that this could (or should) have been the final match-up of the entire tournament, but as it was, it was merely a match-up with a chance to get to the Final Four, and the man that might be the Vikings' greatest defensive player ever got past the team's greatest quarterback.

Page's victory sets up what should be an incredible battle in the Final Four, as he will do battle with wide receiver Cris Carter for a chance to go to the Championship Match.

Only one match remains in the Elite 8, folks. . .be sure to get your votes in on Bud Grant vs John Randle, and we'll have more on this tournament as it comes to a conclusion next week.
