The work week is over. . .well, over as soon as you leave work today, I guess. And tomorrow will be the "all-important" third pre-season game as the Minnesota Vikings head to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Kansas City Chiefs.

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

-Ted gave us some things to look for in tomorrow's contest.

-Eric exchanged some questions about the game with our friends from Arrowhead Pride, SB Nation's site for the Chiefs.

-Do you have any good Vikings-themed fantasy football team names?

From some other sources around the internet. . .

-For rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, the stakes are being raised in tomorrow's pre-season game.

-Forbes Magazine says that the Vikings are now worth $1.15 billion.

-Electronic Arts apparently managed to screw up the numbering on the Vikings' uniforms in Madden NFL '15.

-In the battle to make the team, Rodney Smith may be gaining on fellow receiver Adam Thielen.

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 (with spoiler tags, if necessary), and keep the GIFs relatively work-safe.

For today's music, one from a man hailing from the town the Vikings will be playing in tomorrow night.

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