It's the middle of the week in Minnesota Vikings country, ladies and gentlemen. We're just a couple of days away from the second pre-season game for our favorite football team, one in which the starters should see significantly more time than they did this past Friday at home.

Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread, really all we've brought you is Adrian Peterson advancing to the Final Four of our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament, as well as the second Elite 8 match-up between Cris Carter and Jim Marshall. Voting should still be live for about another hour or so, and it's been a hotly contested battle throughout, so make sure to vote if you haven't done so!

Also, it's the last day of Vikings' training camp, folks. We will have the usual Open Thread for you to talk about the coverage that we're providing to each and every one of you. That should pop up at about 10:00 AM Central time.

From some other spots around the internet. . .

-Pro Football Focus has a suggestion for what the Vikings should do with their nose tackle spot.

-Are the Vikings' new uniforms really two different shades of purple?

-The Vikings' top players will play more on Friday, as you'd expect.

-Cornerback Xavier Rhodes is finally healthy, and will play on Friday against the Buffalo Bills.

The rules of the Open Thread are the same as always, ladies and gentlemen. . .no religion, no politics, no feeding the trolls, and keep the bad language to a minimum/use the spoiler tags if you feel the need to curse.

Another day, another random song for our ambient music.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for Wednesday, ladies and gentlemen! Enjoy your day and keep your eyes out for more stuff throughout the course of the day.
