Millie Wall is a life-long Vikings fan and no matter how far her team goes in the playoffs, she’ll get to experience the Super Bowl thanks to Roger Goodell.
If you haven’t heard, Millie Wall is the biggest Minnesota Vikings fan around. The 99-year old superfan made news after she was surprised with tickets to her first-ever playoff game last week, courtesy of the Vikings organization. It was the perfect game to attend, as Wall watched Stefon Diggs score a 61-yard touchdown to give the Vikings a 29-24 walk-off win en to advance to the NFC Championship Game.
For Wall, that was just part of her experience. She was also surprised by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell at the game, who gifted her with two tickets to Super Bowl LII.
For a commissioner who’s been on the backend of copious amounts of criticism, it was a classy move by Goodell nonetheless. If anyone deserves the opportunity, it’s certainly Wall.
What seemed like a distant dream could be a reality for the Vikings. They stand only one win away from becoming the first team to play in a Super Bowl at home. It would be an incredible feat and the Vikings have a good chance even on the road against the Eagles. Their defense has the opportunity to give Nick Foles fits.
We aren’t sure if Wall will be attending the NFC Championship but she won’t have to travel far if the Vikings reach the Super Bowl. She’s witnessed the first walk-off playoff touchdown ever and it’s only fitting she becomes apart of history if the Vikings can win just one more game.
There are plenty of dedicated football fans out there but Wall seems to trump them all. Through thick and thin, she’s stuck around all these years while the Vikings have won just one Super Bowl. She and the rest of the fanbase are hoping it becomes two by the end of the postseason.
