NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Minnesota Vikings
We may have seen the last of this, I’ll miss watching him tote the ball for us.

Merry Wednesday, everyone!

It’s the middle of the week, it’s a nice, easy downhill ride from here on. Enjoy it. I just got to Billings, & my kiddo was elated to see me (the feeling was mutual, of course), it’s a darn good night. I’ll be at a funeral in the morning, then making the lovely drive back to Bismarck (yes, that’s sarcasm, it’s a s***ty, boring drive). Maybe I can stop in Glendive & watch another drug deal take place right outside the restaurant window (Yep, that actually happened. I’ll share that story tomorrow. Man, only in Glendive, I had to text MTViking & tell him about it).

The following pertains to about one half of one percent of you, so most of you can just read it & understand that I’m not talking to you:

I’m going to address this one time, because I’m tired of dealing with it everyday in the comments. This is a place for Vikings fans to come gather news, talk football (among other important subjects like grilling and beer), and have fun. There are some who can’t seem to reply to others without being a horse’s ass every time. It’s driving good people away who would otherwise be here, and it’s going to stop immediately. You’ll see in the rules, it says “If you can't disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away”. Read that very thoroughly, and make sure you understand it before you wade into the comments. I love the community here, it was a great place to be & it’s going to be that way again.

You’ll find some people missing from the comments section already.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Hey, do you have a Vikings question & need an answer? Ask Roughing the Podcast!

Ted shared the report that the Bears are interested in driving up the price for pursuing Patterson.

You can watch Chad Greenway’s press conference, thanks to Chris.

Chris shared the report that Adrian Peterson feels unappreciated by the Vikings.

Ya’ know, I haven’t seen kiddo in over a week & I’m going to hang with him, so I apologize for the lack of any more links for you. If Ted or another mod gets a chance to stop by, maybe they can update these for you. Thanks for understanding.

We come to today’s media selection.

Many thanks to chickmom for suggesting today’s media selection.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-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 get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-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 menudo.
