It's hump day, everybody! Week 15 of NFL action gets underway tomorrow, and we're getting closer to seeing the Minnesota Vikings head to Detroit to take on the Lions at Ford Field.

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

-We started our stream for coverage of this weekend's game with the reminder that kickoff on Sunday isn't until 3:25 PM Central time.

-SKOL GIRL DID A POST! SKOL GIRL DID A POST! Seriously, go read it.

-We did our weekly Power Rankings Roundup to see that the Vikings are, ever so slightly, moving on up.

-We took a look at the Vikings through the eyes of Pro Football Focus and some of their signature stats.

From some other sources around the internet. . .

-Linebacker Chad Greenway has been nominated for the inaugural NFL Sportsmanship Award.

-Here's a great story from A.J. Mansour at KFAN about how receiver Charles Johnson eventually made his way to Minnesota. named the Teddy Bridgewater to Jarius Wright game-winning pass as the best moment of Week 14.

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.

Here is today's entertainment for everyone.

The actual game play starts at about the 8-minute mark, but seriously. . .I had a hell of a time with Mike Tyson's Punch Out back in the day when I could actually see everything. Doing it blindfolded is insane.

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