PHI Eagles Fans Kindly Asked To Wear Purple (Instead Of Green) To Super Bowl

As a sign of friendship, some Minneapolis bars are offering Philadelphia Eagles fans a free beer.

Minneapolis, MN – Vikings fans are kindly asking Philadelphia Eagles fans to wear purple when attending Super Bowl 52 in the Minnesota Viking’s brand new stadium.

Members of the Vikings Fans Safety Committee all agree that to ensure the safety of Philadelphia Eagles fans while entering and exiting the Vikings Stadium, they should not be wearing any green.

The VFSC stated: “To atone for their sin of mistreating Vikings fans while attending the playoff game in Philadelphia, and to show they are sorry for what they did, and that they regret their stupid, misguided actions, we Vikings fans are willing to extend an olive branch in the name of safety, and allow for safe passage of Eagles fans while in Minnesota, as long as they wear Vikings purple instead of Eagles green.”

Piercey Asplin admits that he does look a lot like the recently departed Prince.

Moorhead, MN – He looks almost exactly like Prince but his name is Piercey Asplin, who is still living, and does so in the quirky town of Moorhead.

“I get people coming up to me all the time asking me for an autograph and then suddenly wondering if I didn’t recently pass away,” says Moorhead’s Piercey Asplin.

Piercey says he has always loved the color purple and has a number of favorite things to wear that are paisley.

“Even though I supposedly look a lot like Prince, I was actually not that familiar with his music until last year,” admits the Prince look-a-like.

When we asked Mr. Asplin what he writes when people request his autograph, he explains: “I sign my real name, Piercey, but I’ve learned how to make it look like it says Prince.”

Ironically, all of the letters in Piercey Asplin can be rearranged to spell: Paisley Prince.
