Will Vikings Nation Shatter the Minnesota Super Bowl Curse?
It all comes down to this: it's Super Bowl week, and Minnesota has a chance to come away with a big victory. Well, a Minnesotan.
And not a Lombardi Trophy, but possibly a lot of money.
Kiera Morris will represent the purple & gold on tonight's (2/8/24) episode of Wheel of Fortune. It's the NFL Superfan Tournament this week at the Wheel, and Skol Nation is represented. Break the curse, Kiera!
