Welcome to your Thirsty Thorsday Open Thread! One more day until it's one more day until the weekend.

Around the DN since the last open thead:

Chris informed us that Vikings single-game tickets are available.....sort of.

Vikings news from other sources:


Mike Mayock and Bucky Brooks offer their opinion on the top 5 prospects at each position.

Vikings rank 18th for strength of schedule in 2016, which, at this time of the year, is about as accurate as one of my mock powerball drawings.

The Vikings are to tackle a number of off-season questions. Great piece by Lindsey Young.

Phil Loadholt has some advice on tackling adversity.

Around the rest of the NFL:

Ouch for Cleveland, more bad news. DE/LB Armonty Bryant was indicted on two felony counts of drug possessionstemming from an arrest on Christmas morning, per

Another story from, Cam Newton remains the NFL's number one quarterback heading into 2016.

With that, we come to today's media selection. I was going to be super annoying and play a love song soundtrack here since Sunday is Valentine's Day, but then I found this gem.

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

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 fleischkeukle.
