Minnesota Vikings News And Links, 7/10

USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to another Hump Day edition of your Open Thread!

Once again, there hasn't been a whole lot going on in the world of Minnesota Vikings football. We had a couple more match-ups in our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament (Jim Marshall vs Blair Walsh and Ragnar vs Keith Millard), and the next couple will be coming up within the hour.

However, I want to let everyone know that we have a huge announcement for you coming at noon Central time today. And when I say "huge," I mean it. It's big. It's large. It's huge. It's Big McLargeHuge.

Now you may think I'm overselling it a bit. . .not unlike the Rock being on the receiving end of a Stone Cold Stunner, demonstrated thusly.

(Wow, GIFs really are kind of fun.)

But no, no. . .we mean it. This is big. For now, I'll leave it at that.

The rules for the Open Thread are the same as they've ever been, folks. No politics, no religion, no feeding the trolls, and keep the bad stuff to a minimum and/or use spoiler tags.

Your ambient music for the day, ladies and gentlemen.


With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Wednesday, everybody! Enjoy the rest of your day, watch out for more stuff from our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament (we're down to the last four match-ups of the first round), and we'll have even more for you later on.
