It's the middle of the week, ladies and gentlemen, and we're just one day away from the Minnesota Vikings' next game as they host the Washington Redskins on Thursday Night Football. We'll have more on that match-up throughout the course of the day, so be on the lookout for that.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-CCNorsemen asks if 2013 is the worst season in Minnesota Vikings history.
-Kyle lets us know that offensive tackle Phil Loadholt is out this week. . .whatever day of the week it might be.
-Arif has his latest Blind Power Rankings up for your reading pleasure.
From some other outposts around the internet. . .
-The Vikings had a lot of players sit out of practice yesterday. A whole lot.
-Coach Leslie Frazier has tried to ban hazing.
-Here's another article about the Richie Incognito situation from Patrick Reusse.
The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've ever been, ladies and gentlemen. . .no politics, no religion, no feeding of the trolls, and keep the bad language to a minimum/use the spoiler tags if you feel as though you absolutely must curse.
Let's continue on with Metallica week here, shall we?
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Wednesday, folks. Enjoy the rest of your day, and we'll have more for you later on.
