Another week kicks off today here in Viking Land, ladies and gentlemen. This is probably going to be a short work week for most of you, what with a holiday weekend coming up, but we hope to cram quite a bit in here this week for your reading pleasure.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-We took a look at what might become the new source of funding for the state's portion of the new Minnesota Vikings stadium.
-We had some shots of rookie Cordarrelle Patterson at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere that took place this past weekend.
-The odometer moved past another traffic milestone for our humble little corner of the internet here.
-Cornerback Chris Cook expressed a great deal of confidence in Minnesota's secondary for this upcoming season.
Normally I'd throw some links to some other sites out here, but there will be a couple of stories coming shortly based on those links. We'll link to those stories then.
For our ambient music this week, since I'm feeling thoroughly not creative at the present time, I'm just going to continue with last week's theme of wrestling entrance music. Truth be told, I could probably do this until the regular season started, but next week I'll come up with something different. For today, a performer that some of our younger readers might not necessarily remember.
Cheesy? Yep. Welcome to wrestling in the 1980s.
The rules for the Open Thread are the same as they ever were, folks. . .no politics, no religion, and keep the bad language to a minimum. The beer light is on and the bar is open for Monday, everybody. Come on in, put your feet up, and enjoy the rest of your day.
