Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 12/24

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

It's Christmas Eve, ladies and gentlemen! I know that a lot of folks are probably going to be busy with a lot of stuff today, but we've got your Open Thread for today here just in case anyone's stuck at work or has the ability to hang out for a while.

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

-We aired some of our grievances in honor of Festivus.

-The Power Rankings Roundup for the final week of the regular season is up.

-Running back Ben Tate is no longer a member of the Minnesota Vikings. Didn't see that coming.

-Eric let us know that Harrison Smith (among others) got hosed out of Pro Bowl selections. But I'm sure that once half the players that were voted in pull out because of "injuries" that some members of our favorite team will get to make the trip.

From some other sources around the internet. . .

-Fran Tarkenton is reminded of another group of Minnesota Vikings when he looks at this year's team.

-Here's a story about a guy that keeps the people building the new Vikings' stadium well-fed.

-Wide receiver Jarius Wright would like to extend his contract with the Vikings.

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

For this Christmas Eve, we once again have to go back to the classics.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open on Christmas Eve, ladies and gentlemen. We'll have more for you over the course of the day today. Be safe and enjoy your holiday, everyone!
