Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome back for another day of Minnesota Vikings coverage! We've got some good stuff coming for you over the course of the day, so hopefully you'll enjoy it.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-We passed along that Randy Moss had become the first person in our tournament to move to the second round, as he knocked off Paul Allen.
-And we took a look at which linebacker spot newly-acquired Desmond Bishop might line up at once he takes the field with Minnesota.
From some other outposts around the internet. . .
-NFL.com takes a look at quarterback Christian Ponder as he prepares to lead the Vikings in his third NFL season.
-The Vikings 2013 Ride For Life motorcycle rally will be held on Saturday, 20 July. If you've got a hog, go ahead and check out all the info.
-The Star-Tribune takes a look at some of the Vikings' other overseas experiences, as well of those of the other Minnesota-based sports teams.
The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they ever were, ladies and gentlemen. No politics, no religion, don't feed the trolls, and keep the bad language to a minimum.
Here's today's musical selection. Warning: This song does, in fact, contain some naughty words. It's also freaking hilarious.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for Wednesday, folks. Keep an eye out for more tournament-related stuff coming in the next hour or so, and more stuff to come later on.
