Follow along with the show notes as you listen to Episode 102!
TYBG: Internet sensation and rapper Lil B “The Based God” is most well-known for his “curses” on athletes like James Harden and Kevin Durant. Last week, he sent the Minnesota Vikings a “good luck” message on Twitter. The rest, as they say, is history:
#MyCauseMyCleats: During Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins, 48 Vikings players wore custom designed cleats to showcase different causes and charities that they are passionate about. Check out the full gallery of cleats here:
View all of the cleats that the Vikings players will wear to support their initiatives during "My Cause, My Cleats" Week.
You can bid on some game-worn cleats at nflauction.nfl.com and all proceeds go to the charities.
Fan Art: Vikings fan Kim Kix shared a photo on her Instagram page of some awesome fan art. Kim had the piece custom made as a gift for her boyfriend for their one-year anniversary. The illustration made by Nicole Krzmarcik shows Kim and her boyfriend together in front of U.S. Bank Stadium. The stadium means a lot to the couple, they had their first date there and celebrated their anniversary there too! Congratulations to both of them! We love seeing fan art:
Dancing Like Diggs: Vikings fan Matthew McCarthy shared a video on Twitter of himself and his daughter trying their hand at Stefon Diggs’ touchdown celebration dance. We think they did a pretty good job! Tag us in your touchdown celebration dances using #VikesLife.
