Minnesota Vikings seeking a trademark in 'Minneapolis Miracle'

Note the post at ESPN Vikings seek trademarks for 'Minneapolis Miracle' and 'Minnesota Miracle'

This relates to the pass of Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs.

As to "miracle," CBS Sports wrote: One of the most unlikely quarterbacks of one of the most unlikely contenders engineered one of the most unlikely game-winning drives anyone will ever see


One suspects the proposed trademark might now have little value.

Of ticket prices for Super Bowl LII, from the Washington Post:

On Sunday, when the Minnesota Vikings still had a shot at becoming the first NFL team to advance to a Super Bowl played in its home stadium, ticket prices for the Feb. 4 game shot up to around $8,000 on average, according to secondary retailer TickPick, with the cheapest seat increasing to $5,700 after the Vikings went up 7-0 on the Philadelphia Eagles. The price was driven up by Minnesota’s long-suffering fans, who would not have to spend anything on Super Bowl travel and lodging and thus could spend a little extra on tickets themselves.

At least that was the idea. The Eagles proceeded to score the final 38 points of the game to advance to the Super Bowl while despondent Minnesotans could instead budget their money toward something else


According to a Super Bowl ticket-price tracker operated by SeatGeek, the average price of a seat stood at $5,828 on Wednesday afternoon, and prices for the cheapest tickets also reflected a drop. A TickPick search on Wednesday afternoon showed a get-in price of $3,680, down more than $2,000 from the cheapest ticket offered on early Sunday evening. StubHub was offering a single ticket in an upper-deck corner at U.S. Bank Stadium for $3,395. SeatGeek was selling two tickets in Section 302, three rows from the top of the stadium, for $3,228 each.
