In the sensational game between the Purple People Eaters and the Doomsday Defence, something unbelievable happened. The Minnesota Vikings made a grave mistake by displaying the super popular adult movie actor on the jumbotron.

The Vikings wanted to make a respectful tribute to all the hardworking servicemen. They asked fans on Twitter to send stories of their family members who are serving or have served in the military. Certainly, this is an adorable and heartfelt way to recognize the work soldiers do for the country. However, one fan thought it would be funny to submit his story about his cousin ‘Joel’, who actually was Johnny Sins.
