Horns, Swords and a Longship: August 19, 2016

Two games down, two to go

And Zimmer has still only lost one preseason game.

Longship Log:

We had Eric's preview about what to watch for last night. He also hopped on 740 The Fan to talk Vikings yesterday.

Ted Glover answered some questions by the Seahawks SB Nation page.

Ted wrote about Teddy's non-start yesterday, then wrote further about Zimmer's reasoning why.

Ted wrote the Stock Market Report after the Vikings secured their victory, and Chris wrote the recap.

Around the Horns:

1500 ESPN has their 4 Thoughts on the game last night.

Andy Carlson and Vikings Territory had their thoughts on the game last night.

Andrew Krammer had one possible explanation for Teddy being out.

Vikings Journal had their recap on the game, and their "6 positional battles to watch" yesterday.

Vikings Corner had five quick thoughts on the game last night.

Arif has his take on yesterday's game action.

Patrick Reusse is an idiot or a world-class troll. You decide.

NFL News:

Eagles kicker Caleb Sturgis suffered one of the dumbest concussions in recent memory before their game yesterday against the Steelers.

Tom Brady should apparently not be allowed around scissors.

Ex-NFL safety Darren Sharper got 18 years in prison for committing a number of rapes.

Christian Ponder is now a San Francisco 49er.

Bears CB Kyle Fuller had arthroscopic surgery and will likely be out several weeks. The Bears are hopeful he returns for the season opener, but that is likely optimistic.

Minnesota Twins update:

They got their butts kicked by the Royals 8-1 after Tyler Duffey gave up a go-ahead grand slam in the fourth inning. Jose Berrios takes the mound tonight against Edinson Volquez, first pitch at 7:15 CT.

For our video of the day, I thought it'd be fun to have a highlight from last night's game. So here's our top defense chasing Russel Wilson around the yard.

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 disco light is down and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your local dolphin brigade, & try the whisked egg skins.
