Randy Moss Gets Vikings Highest Honor

Last night, one of the GOATs, Randy Moss, received one of the highest honors a team can give a player: **The Ring of Honor**.

The ceremonies were an all-day affair for Moss. He was honored at a luncheon earlier on Monday, and got a little misty-eyed and choked up when talking about the honor and what it meant to him.

From the moment Moss got to Minnesota, he became a star. From winning Rookie of the Year honors in 1998 to setting numerous records with Vikings including a career record for 100-yard games (41). He also set the NFL rookie record with 17 TDs in 1998, and had 17 again in 2003 to tie the Vikings record for a season twice.

Besides being a great player, Moss was also a cultural icon with almost as many signature shoes as signature plays.

Several Vikings will be honoring him with special shoes tonight:

As for Moss himself - the Vikings hooked him up with some special kicks of his own:

It was a great night for one of the best to ever do it... Oh, and in case you forgot, he made this play:
