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:
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 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!
