    25th Anniversary of the 1980 miracle against the Browns

    http://www.vikingupdate.com/history/historyprofiles/hailmaryclev.html

    Was this the greatest play in Vikings history? The NFL? Sure does not seems that long ago.

    I was in the stands for the "Hail Mary Pass" five years earlier in 1975 sitting in the end zone watching that Playoff game against Dallas. I had with me the HS quarterback from my town. I had taken him to the game as a "treat." That one went against them nad got the name the "Hail Mary" pass.

    Yeah - i tried accessing the article on the startribune - I remember there used to be a nice pic of Kramer & studwell after the game. I guess the archives are being taken down.

    That was my first memory as a Viking fan.

    Hopefully - some of the ghosts from the old met stadium will be looking down on us come Sunday.

    I remember that play as well, mostly from highlight clips now. Does anyone have a video clip of it?

    Yeah I have never seen this before. I'm wondering if anyone has a clip as well. Sounds like an amazing play.

    There were also some great "razzle-dazzle" plays from the early era as well.

    I was sixteen and working as a student custodian at our hospital that day. We had a tv in one of the break rooms. Guess where I was? I was trying to conceal my excitement in the hallway right after it happen (being a hospital and all) but I did do alot of jumping and fist pumping....memories....I was at my grandparents for the 75 hail mary, watching it on a little black and white tv via antena.
