The players, coaches, and staff of the Minnesota Vikings will be reporting to Mankato TOMORROW, and Training Camp will be kicking off in just 48 hours or so. We will be there in force. . .you know, if we haven't already mentioned that at some point. . .and we are very much looking forward to bringing you the best coverage on the interwebs. As great as the past couple of years have been, this year promises to be even better.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-Ted and Di spent some time on the Purple FTW Podcast yesterday. Go ahead and give it a listen. . .good stuff.
-We continued our look back at the Vikings' top plays of 2013 with Jared Allen being. . .well, being Jared Allen.
From some other sources around the internet. . .
-Christian Ponder and his wife Samantha have welcomed a new baby girl into the world. They've named her after Ponder's college coach, Bobby Bowden. No word yet on whether or not the youngster has started receiving hate tweets.
-Adrian Peterson confirmed that, yes, he and long-time girlfriend Ashley Brown have tied the knot.
-Norv Turner thinks that Teddy Bridgewater should have been a Top 10 pick. In related news, duh.
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 language relatively clean (using spoiler tags, if necessary), and keep the GIFs relatively work-safe.
Here's a new video from Mandatory Fun, which today became Weird Al's first ever #1 album. Congratulations to Al!
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Wednesday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day!
