Congratulations to Mike Heller, the grand prize winner in our Packers-Vikings trivia contest.
Mike answered all six questions correctly and will receive a CD of 11 songs played at Lambeau Field from Banshee Music, a sonic branding company based in New Berlin.
Nine runners-up also will receive prizes, including: Tom Mollica, John Loew, Joe Mutranowski, Marty O'Sell, Eric Eichstaedt, Jeff Leffin, Peter Cook, Brad Eder and Pat Tearney.
Here are the questions and answers:
Question No. 1 -- Which former Vikings standout grew up in Wisconsin and held the state high school record in the shot put for nearly 40 years?
Answer: Stu Voigt
Question No. 2 -- What former Packers player intercepted the ill-fated pass from T.J. Rubley in the defining moments of a game at the Metrodome in 1995?
Answer: Jeff Brady
Question No. 3 -- Quarterback Brett Favre made his first start against the Vikings on Dec. 27, 1992, at Lambeau Field and threw three interceptions. Can you name the Minnesota player that picked off all three passes?
Answer: Vencie Glenn
Question No. 4 -- Remember the "Monday Night Miracle?" That was the game Nov. 6, 2000, at Lambeau Field that ended when Antonio Freeman caught Brett Favre's pass, which bounced off cornerback Cris Dishman's hands and onto the shoulder of Antonio Freeman, who rolled over and somehow retained possession before getting up and scrambling, untouched, the final few steps into the end zone. The image of that play is burned into the brains of Packers and Vikings fans alike. Here is the question: How many yards was that touchdown pass?
Answer: 43 yards
Question No. 5: How many touchdown passes and interceptions has Brett Favre thrown in his career against Minnesota?
Answer: 54 touchdowns, 33 interceptions
Question No. 6 -- In 1961, the Vikings' first year of existence, the team lost back-to-back games to the Packers. What were the combined scores of those two games?
Answer: Green Bay 61, Minnesota 17.
