Congratulations to her and her family.

NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

We know that today is America’s birthday, but it’s also the birthday of one of the Minnesota Vikings’ most well-known fans.

Millie Wall, the lady that the Vikings gave tickets to their NFC Divisional Playoff game to, is celebrating her 100th birthday today.

Millie has been a lifelong fan of the Vikings, but had never attended a Vikings’ playoff game. The team changed that this past January, gifting her tickets to the team’s playoff game against the New Orleans Saints. Just when it appeared that she and tens of thousands of Vikings fans would go home disappointed, Case Keenum found Stefon Diggs for a 61-yard touchdown on the final play to give the Vikings an improbable 29-24 victory.

Even NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell got in on the act, wishing Millie the best on her big day.

Congratulations to Millie Wall and her family on the occasion of her 100th birthday. Perhaps for her 101st the Vikings can give her and her family tickets to the 2019 regular season opener so that they can see a Super Bowl banner lifted to the rafters of U.S. Bank Stadium.
