Monday Open Thread: November 28, 2016

It's a short week until the Vikes' next action, let's get ready!

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Monday, everyone. Wow, it'r really snowing here, we're expecting up to a foot by Wednesday, and we're supposed to get 40 mph winds (or, as we call it in ND, a slight breeze). It should be interesting. I love storms. Al;so, thanks to liveforadrenaline for posting the open thread on Friday, since J-Dog was a no show......again.

I hope you all had an enjoyable Thanksgiving weekend, despite our offense's pathetic performance on Thursday. I don't have a lot to say about the game, other than it was ugly and a pathetic display by our offense. They're going to have to step it up on Thursday, because I can guarantee you that 13 points won't be enough against Dallas.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Other sports news of note:

We come to today's media selection. Thanks to Tor66 for this suggestion, we could use a little cheer.

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 pickled pigs feet.
