Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 11/19

Matt Marton-USA TODAY Sports

Well, yesterday certainly was fun, wasn't it?

Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .

-Obviously, the big news from yesterday is the news that running back Adrian Peterson has been suspended for "at least" the rest of the 2014 season by the National Football League.

-The semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2015 have been named. We already knew that Mick Tingelhoff was on the list. . .now you can see who else has joined him.

-As it stands right now, the Minnesota Vikings have no plans to trade or release Adrian Peterson. Not during his suspension, at least.

-To fill an empty spot on their practice squad, the Vikings signed running back Dominique Williams on Tuesday.

The news in the rest of the Vikings' blogosphere today is pretty much all Adrian Peterson, all the time. A couple of my personal favorite takes come from Drew Magary over at GQ and Deadspin (yes, that Deadspin). There are no shortage of takes out there if you want to seek them out. Now that this has had time to marinate a little bit, I'll probably have a lengthier take sometime later on today.

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 musical entertainment, piggybacking on the theme from yesterday's playlist.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for the rest of this Wednesday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day!
