One of the Missing Rings series....for serious fans...and for those that were too young to remember the season with Joe Kapp and crew.
Love how Grant handles the cold.

In our video section, I prefilled a bunch of links for y'all to make it easy to watch the segments.

Depressing to watch every time I have seen it.

40 years ago, and I still get choked up. :-[
That Defense was the reason I became a Vikings fan. I got the Vikings/Chiefs Electronic Football Set for Christmas that year (which I still have), and the freakin chiefs were slaughtered every time. All they could do was run in circles. ;)

That was the year I became a fan, Joe Kapp was my hero as a 8 yr old, and I also got that Viking/Chiefs Electronic Football game. Unfortunantly I don't have mine anymore.
