Helping others in need might be the only thing that Viking and Saints fans can agree on!

A press release announced that hometown boy Marcus Sherels is teaming up with New Orleans Saints punter Thomas Morstead’s What You Give Will Grow foundation this holiday season. The press release explains, "[...] Thomas Morstead and his foundation, What You Give Will Grow, are teaming up with Marcus Sherels to raise funds to support Best Christmas Ever© families in Minnesota and the Greater New Orleans area. Best Christmas Ever© is a non-profit organization that works with community partners to lift up families who have fallen on hard times through no fault of their own by giving them a Best Christmas Ever."

What a concept!

According to the press release, the way donations will be divided is, "[...] the winning team’s market will receive 60-percent of all donations to its respective market, while 40-percent will go to the remaining area."

A video explains that the two players teamed up after some typical Minnesota "nice behavior last season.

I love how these two players put a positive spin on an NFL rivalry! This also proves that our boy Marcus is still a really good guy - but we already knew that.
