Chad Greenway's Dramatic Lake Minnetonka Rescue (Video)

Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway heroically rescued two people who got in trouble with their boat out on Lake Minnetonka yesterday. KARE11 just happened to be in the vicinity shooting a story when the drama unfolded, so there’s video. And here is that dramatic footage.

Truly a harrowing experience for those two folks. Thank goodness Greenway was there or I don’t know what would have happened. They might have been stuck in that same spot for, like, several minutes. They might have even run out of beer. Oh my God, imagine being on a lake and running out of beer.

Horrible. Chad Greenway is a true hero today. He behaved like a true Viking. As in, the opposite of a Packer. A Packer would’ve just stood there and watched those people suffer. Packers don’t like getting their feet wet.

Vikings rush in where Packers fear to tread. It’s a saying that I just invented. Seriously though, don’t go out on your boat when the water’s rough and you don’t really know what you’re doing. For real. Chad Greenway might not always be there to save you.
