Apologies to Monty Python and the Holy Grail: It was noted earlier this week that it was suggested this was the bye week for the Vikings when in fact the Vikings do have a game against the Denver Broncos at home followed by a bye week. Those responsible have been sacked. We apologise again for the fault in the Words Up Here That No One Reads™. As these are the Words No One Reads™ those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked have been sacked. The editorial staff of the firm hired to continue the Words No One Reads™ after the other people had been sacked, wish it to be known that they have just been sacked. Meanwhile, let’s carry on with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and go ahead and work through lunch, you took a long lunch last week, slacker.
