Quite the gesture by the Vikings.

Not to toot our own horn, but this is another great example of "Minnesota nice." 

According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, the Vikings gifted confetti from Super Bowl LII to two dozen Eagles fans who donated to the Minnesota Vikings Foundation. 

One of the fans posted a photo of the note and jar of confetti sent to them by the Vikings. 

The note says that their "positive attitude and great sportsmanship toward the Minnesota Vikings did not go unnoticed or unappreciated." 

Vikings Executive Director of Communications, Jeff Anderson, told ESPN that sending championship confetti was something they thought would be a "nice gesture" to charitable Eagles fans. 

ESPN notes that most of the donations came with notes apologizing for the way Philly fans treated Vikings fans during the NFC Championship Game. 

We described said treatment in this story, called"So, Philadelphia fans are awful."

This gesture however proves that there are plenty of good eggs among the bad.
