Yes, the Open Thread is late today, ladies and gentlemen. . .my apologies for that. But it's here now, so better late than never, am I right?
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-Eric has put together his picks column for this week for your reading pleasure.
-Mark has his weekly look at which college football players you should be keeping an eye on this weekend.
From some other sources around the internet. . .
-Former Viking Jared Allen believes that running back Adrian Peterson should be allowed to return to the Minnesota Vikings.
-Tight end Kyle Rudolph was a full participant in practice on Friday, but running back Jerick McKinnon was limited with a lower back issue.
-Harrison Smith studies a lot, and that's a big part of why he's so darn good.
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, keep the bad language to a minimum (using spoiler tags, if necessary), and keep the pictures work-safe and appropriately sized.
Today's Open Thread entertainment.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Friday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day!
