It’s your Thorsday Open Thread

Good Morning!

I’m going back on service for the next seven days, as usual I’ll be putting these together after work which is usually around midnight. If you see Vikings news on the twitterz or elsewhere that I didn’t see feel free to post in the comments. Previously mentioned by Gone Fishin, he will be attending the home game vs. the Eagles. MT Viking and I will also be attending this game, if you’re planning on going let us know if you want to meet up for an adult beverage or a high five, as the season progresses I’ll probably drop a Fanpost with relevant links, notes and my email. News of our favorite team is scant, but we’ll 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 have another coffee, it’s Thorsday.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris notes the policy Service Academy athletes pursuing professional sports careers to be reversed.

PFF: Vikings still have Top Ten roster in the NFL.

Vikings news from other sources:

We come to today’s media selection: Snoop Dogg f. Willie Nelson - Superman
(some marijuana use in this video, if that offends you do not watch)

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, try the monotony and Welcome Aboard!
