Welcome to Friday, ladies and gentlemen. . .everyone's favorite day of the week! (Well, except for Sunday, I suppose.)
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-Eric was a guest on the Purple FTW Podcast. Go ahead and have a listen.
-Ted exchanged some questions with the folks from Acme Packing Company about this weekend's game. You can see Ted's answers to their questions here, and their answers to Ted's questions here.
-Another NFL team is going to be displaced for at least one game by nasty weather.
-Hey, we have our own league on FanDuel this weekend! Check it out and sign up!
-The NFLPA officially filed their grievance in the matter concerning Minnesota Vikings' running back Adrian Peterson. Peterson also speculated a bit about moving on from the Vikings.
-Mark has his weekly look at which college football players you should be keeping an eye on this weekend.
-And Eric posted his picks column for this week of NFL action.
That should be plenty to tide people over, although I will say that everyone owes it to themselves to check out Tom Pelissero's interview with Adrian Peterson that came out in USA Today yesterday. Very good read.
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. (If you need help with re-sizing images, here is a link to some code that should help you.)
Here is today's musical 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!
