Millie Wall is a 99-year-old Minnesota Vikings fan – and this weekend she’s going to her first playoff game. Wall has been a fan since attending her first Vikings game back in 1961 – the year the team entered the league. In fact, Wall watched games at Minneapolis’ Metropolitan Stadium – and not only will this be her first playoff game, but her first time to see a game at Minnesota’s brand new US Bank Stadium. Millie’s granddaughter caught Millie’s reaction when she found out about her surprise, and the video has now gone viral.

Is it a statement? Is it an advertisement? Or, maybe it’s the only thing they’re any good at drawing.
