A new week is upon us, ladies and gentlemen, and with it the chance to start looking forward to another Minnesota Vikings' pre-season game. Remember, this week our team doesn't play until Sunday, when the team takes on the defending NFC Champions, the San Francisco 49ers, on NBC's Sunday Night Football.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-If you want to relive all the excitement of the Vikings' pre-season game against the Buffalo Bills. . .and, really, why wouldn't you. . .you can do that with our thread for the game.
-Ted came through with his Stock Market Report for Friday's game, as well as who he thinks is on the bubble halfway through the pre-season schedule.
-Receiver Jarius Wright suffered a concussion on Friday, but he returned to practice yesterday.
-And the Final Four of our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament will get underway in less than an hour, with the first of the two match-ups to determine the finalists.
-Also, don't forget that the sign-ups for our Fantasy Football League will be happening today at 10:00 AM Central.
From some other places around the internet. . .
-Running back Adrian Peterson will be making his pre-season debut on Friday.
-And you thought your Vikings room was stacked.
-Is cornerback Bobby Felder going to take a roster spot from Marcus Sherels?
The rules of the Open Thread are the same as always, ladies and gentlemen. . .no religion, no politics, no feeding of the trolls, and keep the bad language to a minumum/use the spoiler tags if you feel the need to curse.
No real theme for this week's music, either. . .just songs that strike my fancy at the time I'm putting the Open Thread together.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for Monday, ladies and gentlemen! Enjoy the day, and we'll be back with more later on.
