It's Thursday, ladies and gentlemen. . .there's a football game this evening featuring two teams that the Minnesota Vikings will be playing later on this season, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons do battle on the NFL Network and on CBS. So, check that out if you're interested.

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

-We made a crazy attempt to get back into talking football, as linebacker Chad Greenway is currently dealing with a broken left hand.

-The initial list of 2015 Pro Football Hall of Fame nominees has been announced, and Vikings' great Mick Tingelhoff is on the list as the lone seniors candidate.

-The way the whole Adrian Peterson saga finally concluded really was the best scenario for everyone involved.

-Di opened up the DN Mailbag for the first time. This will be a weekly feature for us, so hopefully we'll continue getting some solid questions.

I'd throw in some links from some other sites on the internet, but you know what they're about, for the most part.

The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've always been. . .no politics, no religion, no feeding of the trolls, keep the language relatively clean, and keep the GIFs relatively work-safe. Yesterday's Open Thread got a bit out of control in places, and I'm hoping that means that people have most of the vitriol out of their systems.

For today's entertainment, something I think we could all use right now.

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