In other Vikings news. . .
-Rick Spielman reiterated once again that the team has no intention of trading wide receiver Percy Harvin

And now, your ambient music to wrap up "President's Week."
(Yes, it's spelled differently. No, it's not cheating. . .if I wanted to cheat, I would have gone with Jefferson Starship after using Jefferson Airplane earlier in the week. There are a lot fewer President-named/themed bands than I thought there were.)
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for Friday, ladies and gentlemen. Same as it ever was. . .no religion, no politics, no bad words or anything of that nature. Keep an eye out for any more news and notes we might have for you throughout the course of the day.
