Don't Fall For Fake Tickets

A Minnesota Vikings fan got her hands on some of the hottest tickets in town - with a lovely thank you note from the team itself.

Almost 100 fans lost money to counterfeit tickets to the Vikings final home game of the season against the Bears.

The team tweeted a video of Millie finding out the good news on Monday, which included a very adorable reaction from the birthday girl herself: "You've gotta be kidding".

"This really is a dream come true for her to attend her first playoff game", said Wall's granddaughter, Ashley Wall, who helped deliver the surprise, according to the Vikings website.

When Millie's jaw dropped, family members cheered in the background - more than 30 of them.

To thank Millie for her dedication as a Vikings fan, the organization sent her a surprise she won't soon forget. "She immediately was like, 'What is going on?" But she has never attended a playoff game. "But even through the ups and downs, she's been a fan through it all".

The Vikings will take on the New Orleans Saints at 3:40 p.m. this Sunday.

As for Sunday, Ashley said she's torn between watching the action on the field or turning her head to watch her grandmother's reaction to the game. "We're so excited as a family to watch her and watch everything come to life".
