Happy Wednesday, everyone! Another lovely, snow filled day here in Bismarck, it’s just beautiful out there. Well, we’re one day away from our game against Dallas, and there is a slight chance that yours truly will be going to the game. I sure hope so, it would be fun watching in person as we upset the top team in the conference.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Ted invites you to Ask Roughing the Podcast.

Chris shared the injury report, and Sam Bradford and Everson Griffen were limited in practice yesterday.

Vikings news from other sources:

From ESPN, Adrian Peterson was running sprints and is ahead of schedule.

The Strib wonders how much AD could help the Vikings.

From Vikings.com:

Everson Griffen joined Deion to preview the Vikings-Cowboys.

Coach Zimmer addressed the media yesterday.

Around the NFL:

The Patriots signed Marcus Cannon to a 5-year extension, per NFL.com.

From NFL.com, the Falcons lost Desmond Trufant for the rest of the season with a pectoral injury.

ESPN looks at which coaches are on the hot seat. They also look at the NFL’s hottest head-coaching candidates.

We come to today’s media selection.

Thanks to chiefrobinson for suggesting this tune from the great band, Blackfoot.

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.
