Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 8/26

Peter Aiken

Good morning, everybody, and welcome to your Tuesday Open Thread. We're just a couple of days away from the pre-season finale, as well as learning who will comprise the final 53-man roster for the Minnesota Vikings.

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

-Teddy Bridgewater may not have been named the starting quarterback for the Vikings, but his supporters aren't going away.

-The Vikings made most of their cuts yesterday, but still have to make another move or two before 3 PM Central time.

-And, as you probably already gathered from the first link, Matt Cassel was named the starting quarterback for Week 1 against the St. Louis Rams.

From some other sources around the interwebs. . .

-It appears the only positions left to be decided for the Vikings are middle linebacker and safety.

-Bridgewater thinks that he's in the perfect situation.

-The Vikings will be helping to provide athletic trainers for high schools in the Twin Cities area.

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 today's video.

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