The day is slowly approaching........

Merry Tuesday, everyone!

Hey, we’re a week away from tax day, so if you’re like me and haven’t finished your taxes, you should probably do that soon.

Hey, let’s give you the results of last week’s poll.

I’m trying to get a feel for where Vikings fans are prior to the draft. How many wins do you think the Vikings will get next year?

2%- less than 7
12%- 7 or 8
54%- 9 or 10
30%- 11 or 12
2%- 13+

And a new poll for the week.


Regarding available free agents, are there any you think we should target? If so, who?

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 pickled pigs feet.
