Local Fans Cherish Vikings Win, Special Gift

Where were you when the Minneapolis Miracle happened?
Vikings fans know exactly what I’m talking about.

The Vikes completed a miracle pass – 61 yards – on the final play of the game to beat New Orleans and head for the NFC title game next week.
Just listen to the complete bedlam at US Bank Stadium following that winning play.

We searched for local fans who were at the game – many were just driving home today.
And we connected with the Reichenberger family – and found out that young Urijah had nabbed quite a piece of memorabilia – the championship hat worn by Vikings quarterback Case Keenum.
Keenum plopped it onto Urijah’s head as he was walking in the tunnel from the field after the game last night.

(Urijah Reichenberger, Vikings Fan) “Diggs was going to sign my jersey or my football and Case Keenum cut him off and put his hat on me!”
(Dani Reichenberger, Urijah’s Mother) “Before the game, Case has stopped and given Urijah his practice towel. After the game Case came through and he flipped his hat off and put it on Urijah and he said, whooo! Skol buddy!”

Some famous North Dakotans were in the crowd too – such as the governor and first lady, who posted this photo on Facebook.
Plus actor and Minot native Josh Duhamel was there and posted this video on Facebook.

(Josh Duhamel) “Dilly, dilly! We’re going to Philly!”

We talked with the Reichenberger family at the local Scheel’s store – and the manager said the store is getting in lots more Vikings gear in anticipation of a busy week of sales leading up to the NFC championship game that happens Sunday.
