Pathetic, just......pathetic

Welcome to Monday. Well, that game was......pathetic. Horrible on both sides of the ball, and there’s really nothing to learn from it, so I’m not going to bother trying. Wow.

Where does the team go from here? Obviously, you try to win out & hope for the .0001% chance of making the playoffs, but how do they respond to yesterday’s beat down? We’ll find out Sunday when the Vikings go to Green Bay to take on the Packers. Time to see what the team is made of.

We come to today’s media selection.

The Vikings-Colts game is in the middle of the road.

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 on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the how maws.
