Former Vikings defensive tackle Alan Page was inducted into the Hall of Fame and was a key part of the “Purple People Eaters,” a prolific Minnesota defensive line that helped lead the team to four Super Bowl appearances.

But enough about his NFL career. Page attended the University of Minnesota Law School while playing for the Vikings. After his retirement from the league, he went on to become an associate justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court.

Somehow, someway that did not earn him a blue checkmark on Twitter. Page recently took to Twitter to voice his frustration with the lack of verification.

Page added the phrase “#notnotable” to his tweet. Usually that kind of remark would be considered a tad ridiculous coming from someone who’s had the life Page has had. But Twitter found a way to make it so, according to their verification system.

Maybe it’s a mistake, or maybe not. Either way, Page is at least well known in Vikings territory, as one of the more important players in the franchise’s history. I guess he’ll have to settle for all his accolades and achievements while he waits on that blue checkmark.
