Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 12/19

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

We've made it to another Friday, and it's a great day for America, ladies and gentlemen!

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

-Eric has his weekly picks column up. It does not say "Dead Pick Storage" on it, because storing dead picks isn't our business.

-Arif and company have put together the latest episode of Norse Code for your listening pleasure.

-Norv Turner really likes Teddy Bridgewater. You should really like Teddy Bridgewater, too.

From some other sites around the internet. . .

-December has been a pretty good month for rookie linebacker Brandon Watts.

-Some of the Minnesota Vikings' players, led by Greg Jenningspaid a visit to the Starkey Hearing Foundation.

-Knock knock! Who's there? Orange! Orange who? Orange you glad that the Vikings didn't pull the trigger on a trade for Jay Cutler a few years ago?

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 the spoiler tags, if necessary), and keep the pictures work-safe and appropriately-sized.

For today's entertainment, a bit of a tribute, as tonight marks the end of an era. This evening, the last bastion of decent late-night programming leaves the airwaves, as the final episode of The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson airs on CBS. Craig Ferguson has been the best damn thing about late-night for a long time now, and I was personally pretty bummed that he didn't get David Letterman's spot at CBS. So, here are a few bits of The Late Late Show for your enjoyment, including his perspective on the Britney Spears situation through the lens of his own personal battles.

Wavy Rancheros FTW.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Friday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day, and we'll have more for you later on.
