Twins players led a 'Skol' chant at TwinsFest for the Vikings' NFC Championship Game

@Twins

On Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings will face the Philadelphia Eagles with a Super Bowl berth on the line in the NFC Championship Game. Being their friendly neighbors, members of the Twins (including hometown favorite Joe Mauer) decided to take a moment at TwinsFest on Saturday to wish them luck by copying their famous 'Skol' chant:

That's a good use of the batting cage ball bucket.

Slugging second baseman Brian Dozier was not involved in the chant, but longtime teammate Glen Perkins spotted him wearing a "Bring It Home" badge in support of the Vikings:

That must not have been easy for Dozier, who is a known fan of the New Orleans Saints -- the team that just lost to the Vikings last week in dramatic fashion. Kind of him to let bygones be bygones and cheer on his fans' favorite NFL team anyway!
