"Twas the Night Before Christmas" – Vikings style.

The Vikings Entertainment Network put together their own version of the classic Christmas story, with running back Jerick McKinnon reading it in a purple suit (watch the video below).

The team did an amazing job plugging in players and head coach Mike Zimmer into the story. However the highlight was when they listed off all the offensive linemen Minnesota has gone through this season:

"With a tough old driver, so stern and so grim, I knew in a moment, it must be coach Zim. More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, and he whistled and shouted and called them by name: now Berger, now Boone, now Beavers, now Clemmings, now Sirles, now Kerin, now Easton, now Kalil, now Hill, now Long, now Smith (big exhale). To the of the prow to the top of wall. Now dash away, dash way, dash away all."
