Merry Friday, everyone!

Alright, it’s only two short days until kickoff. I, for one, can’t wait. I think the good guys are gonna show up and surprise a lot of people, as there aren’t a lot of folks who are giving the Vikings a chance in this one. I’m looking forward to kickoff, then we can start worrying about the next game.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Arif posted Norse Code Podcast 312: Hotseats and Playoff Preview with Seth Galina.

Chris shared the Vikings Thursday injury report, and thankfully, Eric Kendricks has returned to practice.

Other Vikings/NFL news, and random oddities and annoyances:

From ESPN, Troy Polamalu and Reggie Wayne are among the finalists for the Hall of Fame.

The Browns plan to hire their head coach prior to hiring their new GM, per ESPN.

The Chargers GM won’t make a quick decision regarding whether to continue with Philip Rivers as their quarterback, per FoxSports.

We come to today’s media selection:

I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a LOT of this guy on Sunday. Here’s a preview. Enjoy!

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
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waiter, but try not to tip him over. Most of all, Welcome Aboard!
