It’s officially playoff time for the Minnesota Vikings after enjoying their bye week during last week’s Wild Card round. I’m assuming that all of the tickets that were available have been sold out, but the Vikings had a big surprise for someone that has been a supporter of the team for a long time.

Mille Wall has been a fan of the team since they were founded in 1961. She’s going to turn 100 years young this year, but despite her long time fandom, she has never attended a Vikings’ playoff game.

Well, someone inside the Vikings’ organization has decided to change that, as they’ve sent Mille tickets to this weekend’s playoff contest at U.S. Bank Stadium. Her granddaughter filmed the moment that she got the gift, and the team shared it on their social media account.

Man, what a great moment for her and her family. What an opportunity for a first playoff game to attend, too.

Here’s hoping that Mille and her family are celebrating a Minnesota victory along with the rest of us by next Sunday night.
