Millie ill, missing the Super Bowl

We're wishing Millie a speedy recovery as she misses the big game due to pneumonia.

MINNEAPOLIS - Vikings superfan Millie Wall, 99 years old, captured Minnesota's collective heart this year.

She was so beloved by fans and the franchise alike that the Vikings gave her playoff tickets to the Minneapolis Miracle game against the Saints - and then tickets to the Super Bowl.

Unfortunately, Millie's granddaughter tells KARE 11 that her grandma is recovering from pneumonia and will not make it to the big game.

Millie is turning 100 this July. The game against the Saints was the first Vikings playoff game she's ever attended.

Get well soon, Millie!

We can't wait for you to help us #BringItHome for your 100th birthday, Millie!
