Happy Friday (again), everyone!

There seems to be a bit of excitement in Vikings land for some reason, lots of comments today.

Thread’s full!!

News and updates since our last open thread:

Saxyprince posted Climbing the Pocket: Episode 64 [Vikings vs. Eagles Preview].

From The Pioneer Press, if things go as we hope they do, Terence Newman may return at the age of 40 to go for a repeat.

NFL.com has a preview of the Vikings-Eagles NFCCG on Sunday, also a preview of the Championship game from that other division.

From NFL.com, Tom Brady did not participate in Thursday’s practice. I’d caution you to read much into anything coming out of Patriots camp, Bilichick likes to play games with the injury report, so I won’t believe anything until I see Hoyer under center.

Sean Payton is making the Saints one of the NFL’s most hated teams, per NOLA.com. Even his own fan base is starting to notice how big of a d-bag he is.

Here is a media selection for your Friday afternoon and weekend.

I can’t think of a better selection than just_rob picked this morning. Let’s play it again, I f****ng love Stefon Diggs.

Michael Strahan liked this play, too.

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 head cheese
