High winds wreaked havoc around the metro area on Monday, but in one particularly dangerous situation Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway was the right man in the right spot.

Greenway helped rescue a pair of boaters who were stranded on Lake Minnetonka -- their craft stuck in a spillway near a dam after being pushed by the wind.

Greenway jumped into the water to help push the boat to safety until more help arrived, according to Kare 11.

One of the stranded boaters is a Vikings fan, but the other? He's a Bears fan.

"Good thing he told me that after!" joked Greenway.

While we're not sure exactly how imminent danger was in this situation, it is nice -- considering the 2005 Love Boat scandal -- to see Vikings players putting their powers to good use on Lake Minnetonka.
