Well, it's another Monday here in Minnesota Vikings country, ladies and gentlemen. The Vikings kick off their final Organized Team Activity session today, and this one will run all week long at Winter Park. Hopefully there will be something of interest coming from that during the course of the week for us to share with you.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-Certified Athletic Trainer Eric Sugarman™ and the rest of the Vikings' training staff are up for an award connected to Adrian Peterson's rehab from his knee injury. (You are voting, aren't you?)
-CCNorseman's FanPost containing his "Ultimate Power Rankings" is here on the front page, starting with the offense.
-Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier appears to finally be getting some respect in league circles.
-The search for Kathlynn Shepard, a young Vikings fan that had been abducted near her Iowa home, came to a tragic end over the weekend.
-We took a look at one individual's opinion of whether Adrian Peterson could have the first back-to-back 2,000-yard rushing seasons in NFL history.
-The Minnesota Vikings spent a lot of time ahead of their opponents during their surprising 2012 run.
That should be enough to keep everyone's appetite sated for now.
The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've ever been. . .no politics, no religion, no bad language, and please don't feed the trolls.
For this week's music, we're going to take a look back at some "one-hit wonders" over the years. The idea for this came when I read this article over the weekend that says the following song still makes its artists over half a million dollars a year.
And for today's installment of "Gates tries to make everyone feel as old as he feels," that song game out twenty years ago. Yes, twenty. Two-zero. That means it's probably older than some of you that are reading this.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for Monday, ladies and gentlemen. Keep it tuned right here, and we'll try to have some more good stuff for you throughout the day today.
