Cedar Fair's Shakopee, Minnesota theme park, Valleyfair, this week sent its Peanuts characters out into the (closed, snowy) park to recreate a miracle.
ICYMI, it's the miraculous ending to last weekend's NFL playoff game, when the Minnesota Vikings came from behind to beat the New Orleans Saints on a 61-yard pass play as time expired. If you want to see an actual replay, it's even better with the meme of "Titanic"'s theme song overlaid upon it:

As for the more visually charming Valleyfair version, I'm totally down with Charlie Brown playing the role of New Orleans' Marcus Williams, who egregiously blew what would have been the game-saving tackle. (Minnesota was out of time outs.) But shouldn't have Lucy been cast as New Orleans Coach Sean Payton, who was mocking Minnesota fans by doing their "Skol" chant... just before his own team went down to defeat? That seems more a Lucy move than making the game-winning pass. And the long-marginalized Sally seems more the Case Keenum type, to me. Who would you have had as the Peanuts QB?
Schroeder playing Stefon Diggs — catching the pass, then doing the "Are you not entertained?" pose in the end zone, though? Perfect casting there.Tweet
