Monday Open Thread: August 20, 2018

Injury updates, a tribute, and everything else a Vikings fan needs

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Merry Monday, everyone!

This will be a brief opening, my apologies. I will try to get on to update and add more content as soon as I’m able.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Cedrick Lang will be placed on injured reserve, according to Mike Zimmer.

Ted dropped off the Stock Market Report from the Vikings-Jaguars game.

Saxyprince posted Climbing the Podcast: Episode 104 [When Sassy Jalen Strikes].

Chris shared the relieving news that Mackensie Alexander’s injury is not serious.

Chris shared a video the Vikings aired as a tribute to Tony Sparano.

We come to today’s media selection:

Here is the video the Vikings played as a tribute to Tony Sparano prior to Saturday’s game. Enjoy!

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 and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, and try the blood sausage
