In an fantastic video shared all around the internet, fans had their hearts warmed by the gesture.

Leading up to the Divisional Round game against the New Orleans Saints, the Vikings organization surprised Wall with a special birthday gift, a pair of tickets to the playoff game, according to Yahoo!

Check out Joe Buck talking about Mille being in attendance and a little of the story during the game broadcast on FOX.

Millie has supported the club since its inception in 1961, although she'd never been able to attend any of their 21 playoff games.

If that wasn't enough for super fan Millie, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell paid her a visit during the game to surprise her with tickets to the ultimate sporting event - Super Bowl LII - which is conveniently being held at the Vikings' stadium on 4 February. They had hoped that she would provide the team with some good luck and she might have because the Vikings were hanging by a thread until they made a miraculous comeback with a walk-off touchdown pass from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs.

The Super Bowl is two weeks later, back at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Minnesota Vikings' superfan Millie Wall, 99, went to her first playoff game Sunday to watch her team beat the New Orleans Saints in a 29-24 victory. She'd say, 'We're going to get this.

"Well, I would rather have us both still in it instead of just one of us. We're going to win this.' Hearing her be so hopeful, not a lot of Vikings fans can say that".

Millie Wall and her granddaughter Ashley Wall were approached by National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell while in their seats during the game. However, the team will need to get past Philadelphia to make that happen.
