Minnesota Vikings News and Links: December 4th, 2019

Hump Day Open Thread

Good Morning!

I was going to post my thoughts about the game, but I see there were over 1300 comments on yesterday’s thread so I’m going to guess that every topic was sliced, diced and blended. Can’t win if you commit dumb penalties, give up about 350 yards on the ground or turn the ball over. Like Lucas said, there was good and bad featuring the Vikings in that game. 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 it’s Wednesday, Hump Day and my Friday, there’s another Vikings game this weekend.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-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 waiter, finish the leftovers and Welcome Aboard!
