Poem by Radio Host Dan Michaels

There once was a guy named Thelen
On the field he is free-wheelin’
He catches every pass
Completes every task
One day a Super Bowl title he’ll be sealin’!

Passes come and passes go
Depends to whom and where their thrown
But there’s a guy I’ve seen play
There’s no ball that gets away
He wears nineteen on the field of battle
Solid and sure-he’s rarely been rattled
One to count on when the ball gets hiked
Then he carries the mail for our purple Vikes
Sacrifices all and gives what it takes-
Made extra special that he’s from Detroit Lakes
One of our own; on a big stage and dealin’
He’s Viking Wide Out-number nineteen Adam Thelen!
