It's the middle of the week again, ladies and gentlemen! And, with that, comes another installment of your Open Thread for the day, allowing you to hang out with your fellow Minnesota Vikings fans and talk about pretty much anything you'd like.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-I think we can start referring to defensive tackle Christian Ballard as a former Viking after his interview with Tom Pelissero.
-For the second time in two weeks, the team has said that rookie receiver Cordarrelle Patterson will get more snaps next week.
From some other outposts across the internet. . .
-John Sullivan and some other NFL players will be hooking up with the folks from Dollar Shave Club to do advertising. (Disclaimer: I love me some Dollar Shave Club.)
-Amy Senser, wife of former Viking Joe Senser, has had the final appeal of her hit-and-run case shot down by the Minnesota Supreme Court.
-The St. Paul Pioneer Press speculates as to who the Cleveland Browns will start at quarterback on Sunday at the Metrodome.
-Bears receiver Brandon Marshall referred to Vikings' safety Harrison Smith as the hardest-hitting safety in the NFL.
The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've ever been, ladies and gentlemen. . .no politics, no religion, no feeding of the trolls, and keep the bad language to a minimum/use the spoiler tags if you feel the need to curse.
We continue with the Led Zeppelin theme for today's music.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Wednesday, ladies and gentlemen! Enjoy the rest of your day, and keep your eyes open for anything else that might be coming today.
