Happy Monday, everyone!

Today is a day of anticipation, as we await the Vikings season opener against the hated Saints. It’s also a day of remembrance, as we remember the terrorist attacks of 16 years ago, and we honor the many heroes who reacted, helped, and for some, gave their lives. Never forget.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Oh hey, maybe you heard, there’s a game or something tonight. Chris has ALL THE COVERAGE! Also, here’s the latest injury reports.

NMVike extended Minnesota Vikings by the Numbers to look at the teams’ coaches.

From Canal Street Chronicles, the Saints’ blog at SB Nation, here’s Interview With The Enemy, their questions with Chris. Chris also has Five Good Questions with Canal Street Chronicles.

Chad Greenway says Alex Boone got cut for showing up to camp out of shape. Can’t make the club if your a** don’t fit in the tub.......or something.

We come to our media selection.

Alright, I’ve been waiting all year to play this one again. Are you ready?

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 vulgar language to a minimum, using spoiler tags if you must
-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 blood sausage.
