Horns, Swords and a Longship: October 28, 2016

We've reached another Friday, enjoy yourselves everyone!

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Longship Log:

Ted posted this week's 5 Questions with Windy City Gridiron.

Eric posted his weekly picks.

Around the Horns:

Mike Zimmer attempted to set the record straight on his misconstrued slaughter of stuffed animals. Treadwell just needs to keep working to get onto the field.

The Vikings will be looking for sacks against the Bears.

Cordarrelle Patterson is currently in the concussion protocol. With the exception of Art Hicks, the Vikings as a whole have categorically denied the existence of any bounty program that supposedly took place in 2009. Jerick McKinnon is currently in a walking boot.

Swords from the Opposing Hordes:

Richard Sherman is not a fan of the current NFL.

Apparently the Jaguar front office is full of morons.

CJ Anderson is out for the regular season.

Aldon Smith has applied for reinstatement with the NFL.

Minnesota Wild update:

The Wild made the most of a strong first and third period and struggled through a tough second period and relied on the skills of goalie Devan Dubnyk to record their second consecutive shutout in a 4-0 win over Buffalo. The Wild move to 5-2-1 on the season and are atop the Central Division with 11 points through eight games (SUCK IT COLORADO!). The Wild return home to play the Dallas Stars (f*** Norm Green) tomorrow night at 7:00 CT. LGW!

Here's this week's preview video from

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags 
-No pictures that could potentially get someone fired or in serious trouble at their place of employment
-If you can't disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it's sarcasm
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door

With that, the disco light is down and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your local dolphin brigade, & try the wood-infused fricasseed rabbit.
