Tingelhoff was unable to speak due to some health issues but his old buddy Fran Tarkenton was there to thank his and Mick’s Vikings teammates, coach Bud Grant and the fans. Yes, even Steelers fans.

You can see the joy on Tingelhoff’s face as he and Tarkenton unveil the bust. Emotional day for everyone involved. Now let’s go out and get revenge on the Steelers for that Super Bowl loss by winning an exhibition game!
