Merry Thirsty Thorsday, DN faithful! These post-loss weeks move agonizingly slowly, don't they?

Around the DN since our last open thread:

The Vikings signed Rashod Hill and placed Jake Long on IR.

Eric was on the Purple FTW! Podcast.

Chris gave out the Vikings Game Ball Week 10 Award.

Chris also gave us the Minnesota Vikings Power Rankings Roundup.

Eric shared a fanshot of a Blair Walsh parody song.

Ted and Di posted Roughing the Podcast, Episode 15: Walshapocalypse.

Eric takes a brief look at Vikings/Cardinals history.

Vikings news from other sources:

ESPN says the Vikings' playoff hope could hinge on their O line.

From the Strib, the match up between Stefon Diggs and Patrick Peterson could be interesting.


Mike Zimmer addressed the media yesterday.

Sam Bradford also talked with the media.

Kevin McDermott talked about Walsh being cut and the signing of Forbath.

Alex Boone talked about cutting Walsh and another O-line shuffle.

Rashod Hill talked with the media yesterday.

Hill opted to leave Jacksonville for a potential opportunity with the Vikings.

Around the rest of the NFL:

Steve Smith says he and Cam Newton 'bumped heads' in Carolina.

Here's something different, Yahoo Sports has the 7 stadiums where you're most likely to get arrested.

From ESPN, running back Christine Michael landed in Green Bay, rumor is that Minnesota claimed him, but the Packers were ahead on the waiver wire because they have a worse record.

We come to today's media selection. We haven't played Metallica in a while, that needs to change.

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 beer light is down and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the menudo.
