Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 12/23

Happy Festivus, everybody! There will almost certainly be an airing of grievances later on today. . .as Mr. Festivus himself, Frank Costanza, put it. . .I've got a LOT OF PROBLEMS WITH YOU PEOPLE!

(Well, not with you all, so much. . .but we'll probably still do the airing of grievances thing anyway, just because. More football-centric, I think.)

(And no, I didn't mean anything by "you people." Stop looking at me like that.)

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

-Ted took a look at the blown call from Sunday's game that cost the Minnesota Vikings four points.

-The folks over at Card Chronicle still love them some Teddy Bridgewater. Who can blame them, really?

-Speaking of Bridgewater, he might be a little boring, but that's the way (uh-huh, uh-huh) we like it (uh-huh, uh-huh).

From some other sources around the internet. . .

-The Vikings' opponents this weekend, the Chicago Bears, will start backup quarterback Jay Cutler. . .HA HA BACKUP QUARTERBACK JAY CUTLER. . .when they visit TCF Bank Stadium on Sunday.

-Mike Zimmer got an early start on his Festivus for this year, as he went ahead and did his airing of grievances yesterday.

-The team has already sold over 30,000 season tickets for the new stadium. Somewhere, Doug Mann is planning another lawsuit. If he was any more of a tool, he'd have to legally change his last name to Lowe's.

-Chad Greenway is back in South Dakota today for his father's funeral. Our thoughts are with him and the rest of the Greenway family.

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.

Oh, and Kyle insists on doing the Feats of Strength without pants. Don't ask.

Today's entertainment. . .what else?

We ask that you not rain blows down upon too many people, though. That sort of thing is generally frowned upon. Also, everyone's membership fees for this month will be donated to The Human Fund.

The Human Fund: Money. . .for People

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