We roll on along here at your favorite Minnesota Vikings' website with your Tuesday Open Thread. Once again, the rules for the Open Thread are the same as they've always been. . .no religion, no politics, and minimal amounts of bad language in the discussion. Other than that, every topic is fair game.

Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .

-Arif started on his Big Board of wide receivers, specific to the Minnesota Vikings.

-Kyle looked at the Vikings' future at the defensive end position.

-Kyle also let us know that Antoine Winfield is in discussions with the Seattle Seahawks.

-The Vikings worked out one of the top draft-eligible punters last week, possibly spelling an end to the Viking career of Chris Kluwe.

From other outposts around the interwebs. . .

-Yahoo! Sports looks at whether the Vikings can make the playoffs again in 2013 (of course they can).

-Speaking of Kluwe. . .he was speaking at THE. . .dramatic pause. . .Ohio State University yesterday. Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few months, you can probably guess the topic du jour.

-Loooooooooooooooooooooooooove. . .exciting and newwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Come aboarrrrrrrrrrrrd. . .we're expecting youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

-Chuck Foreman thinks the new helmet-lowering rule will negatively affect Adrian Peterson.

-Ray Edwards has backed out of his next fight due to a combination of an ear infection and the possibility of actually having to hit his opponent. (But mostly because of the possibility of actually having to hit his opponent.)

-Erin Henderson is making a difference in the lives of some rather large animals.

Your ambient music for the day is brought to you by rap music's greatest trio and a group of rock music legends.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for a Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day, and we'll be back with more for you later on.
