It is to bad that we need to ride this emotional roller coaster. Vikings are great after a win and horrible after a loss. Hey, this is a game and we can not expect to win every game every year. It's sad when someone can not leave their house without fans getting all over the player. This means good times and bad.

Good for Pat
He's able to look past the petty border rivalry used by hospitalized pucker fans to see the big picture.
Another proof positive Vikings and their fans are the BEST!!!

Kudos, to these five players. Anything for Kids...... Great job guys. We so often put a rap on players, and some of them deserve it. However, we do not spend enough time thanking them for the good they do in our communities. Once again, nice job guys.

Congratulations, to you for again showing how big a loser you are for calling an eleven year old at a children's hospital names. Maybe you need to open your eyes and see that there are a lot more important things in life than NFL football. Also Congrats to these Vikings players, and other NFL players who do these things to brighten a less fortunate childs day.

I wish much more of this would happen.

LOL that the picture has to be of a kid in a Packer's shirt... Guess they couldn't find any of the kids willing to wear a Vikings shirt.

You're so easy
I have tremendous respect for the players, they did this for the kids, and when it brings a smile to their faces, it's all worth it to these guys.
All these kids are in need of some good news, and a visit by pro football players would be the highlight of many a Childs year.

But....these kids knew the Vikings players would be there, so it's really all about respect. This kid knew that by wearing all that packer stuff he may raise the ire of the players, but it was the players themselves who rose above the diss to show this kid that there's more to life than the gb packers.
If it were a Viking fan in a GB hospital who decided to wear all the purple and gold for a visit by current packer players, I'd bet dollars to donuts he doesn't get the time of day from them.
Tell me it isn’t so.
