Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 12/31

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

It's the day after Black Monday. . .which I guess would be Gray Tuesday or something. . .and the final day of 2013, everybody! I'm sure that many of you are planning for parties or things of that nature this evening, so be responsible if you're going to be partying harder than normal.

Obviously, the big story from yesterday was the firing of Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier. We've got all of the stories relating to the firing right here, including tributes, possible replacements, and. . .yes, even RICKSPEAK. And lots of other stuff as well.

You've probably read takes on the firing from everywhere by now, so we'll just leave you with the above links for now. Otherwise, the rules for your Open Thread are the same as they've ever been, folks. . .no politics, no religion, no feeding of the trolls, and keep the bad language to a minimum/use the spoiler tags if you feel that you absolutely must curse.

Someone suggested this song for yesterday, so I'll go ahead and put it in here today.

Quite possible. . .and probably likely. . .that I've used this song before. But it's still awesome, so that's okay.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for the final Open Thread of 2013, ladies and gentlemen. We'll have some more for you throughout the course of the day, and if you don't come back between now and tomorrow, Happy New Year to you and yours from everyone at The Daily Norseman!
