Happy Monday to you, ladies and gentlemen! Yes, not the words you want to hear, particularly following a long weekend, but look on the bright side. . .we're under three weeks to go until the start of Minnesota Vikings training camp! That's something, isn't it?
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-We had plenty of action taking place in our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament. The next couple of match-ups will be up in an hour or so, and we're nearly done with Round One.
-We asked who you'd take with the #2 overall pick in your fantasy football draft.
-The Vikings are well-represented on NFL.com's all-NFC North team.
-If you could trade in one of your Vikings jerseys, which one would it be?
Not really a whole lot on other fronts over the long weekend. . .
-WCCO has an interview with Chad Greenway you might enjoy.
-The Bismarck Tribune put together a "Mount Rushmore" for all the Minnesota sports teams.
Yeah, that's really pretty much it.
The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've ever been, folks. . .no politics, no religion, don't feed the trolls, and minimize the bad language/use the spoiler tags if you're going to swear.
I didn't have a real idea for the ambient music for this week, so I'll go back to one that was briefly touched on last week. Yep. . .Muppets.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Monday, everybody! More tournament stuff coming down the pike here shortly, and if we have anything else throughout the day, we will bring it to you as soon as possible.
