The “Minnesota Miracle” (Actually, Miracle #2)

No, I wasn’t lucky enough to be at U.S. Bank Stadium for yesterday’s thrilling win.

But, my 18 year-old son, Jordan, was.

We traded these texts as the game furiously see-sawed the last three minutes (I was watching on TV at home):

Me:  #$@!%!#  (New Orleans scores go-ahead touchdown).
Jordan: !!!!!!! (Vikings kick field goal to re-take lead).
Me: #$@!%!# (New Orleans kicks what appears to be the winning field goal).
Jordan: “WOW!!!” (Vikings complete 60-yard touchdown pass as time expires).

Stefon Diggs’ improbable, game-winning touchdown catch has already been dubbed “The Minnesota Miracle.”

Of course, if you’re old enough to remember (I am), the original “Minnesota Miracle” referred to then-Governor Wendy Anderson (pictured below) revamping the state’s education system in the ’70’s.
