What are the chances that something like this would happen to any of us here in Minnesota?  A family of four, just out taking some holiday pictures, in their favorite Vikings attire; are photobombed by a gigantic man. Not just ANY gigantic man. This man happens to be an actual Minnesota Viking player!


Minnesota Vikings Defensive Lineman Harrison Phillips, number 97, was in the Maple Grove area recently, taking some engagement pictures, when he saw the Meyer family taking some photos in the same location, in their Vikings gear. Now honestly, why not get the real thing? Harrison inched over and took a photo with the family; who are huge Minnesota Vikings fans.
