Merry Tuesday, DN faithful! We're only days away from real football action, as long as no uses the wrong field paint, we should be seeing real live NFL football soon.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Alright, DN faithful, it's now week 5 of the Epic DN Photos of Vikings Fans Jersey Contest.

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 liver.
