In just 72 hours, Minnesota Vikings fans, we will be looking directly at Training Camp 2013, and we will be bringing you as much coverage as we possibly can. In the meantime, we've got our Open Thread here for you to hang out with your fellow fans.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread, we brought you a couple more match-ups in our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament. We have Randall McDaniel taking on Ron Yary and Carl Eller taking on Joey Browner. The voting on those match-ups will be open for another hour or so, and we will bring you two more after that.
From some other places around the internet. . .
-Want a piece of the Metrodome? Better get ready for an auction.
-Yahoo! Sports takes a look at some of the fantasy football prospects for our favorite football team.
-The Vikings are going to set up a "preview center" for their new stadium that they hope to have ready in time for the 2013 season.
-Coltin Gerhart, younger brother of Vikings' running back Toby Gerhart, has committed to play football for Arizona State. (Another Gerhart brother, Garth, played at ASU as well.)
-And in non-Vikings news. . .in February of 2012, Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he would "bet his salary" that his friend Ryan Braun (2011 National League MVP) wasn't using performance enhancing drugs. For his sake, I hope he's not the betting type.
The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've every been, folks. No politics, no religion, no feeding the trolls, and keep the bad language to a minimum/use the spoiler tags if you're going to curse.
Dog Week continues for your ambient music on this Tuesday.
See, "Sirius" is known as the "dog star." It works.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Tuesday, folks! Enjoy your day, and we should have more for you as the day moves forward.
