Victory Open Thread

Good Morning, It’s Victory Tuesday!

I was at work last night and decided I’d go to our favorite pizza place to watch the game if there weren’t a lot of people there only to discover they close at 10pm....so kinda like Chevy Chase in National Lampoon’s Vacation I was standing at the door looking in to a closed business. I was able to watch the game on my phone via the Vikings app, but it was a play behind so I had to mute Twitter. Winning is always more fun than losing, I think the Vikings have an opportunity to go 3-0 at home for a 7-5 record. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links open thread full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s Tuesday, but it’s my Thorsday which is nice.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Minnesota Vikings 19, Chicago Bears 13: Cousins, defense carry Vikings to third straight win.

Vikings Working a Different Formula on Defense.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings.com: Watch Head Coach Mike Zimmer’s locker room speech after Monday’s win over the Bears.

We come to today’s media selection: Skol Vikings - Official Fight Song

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 wash your hands, and Welcome Aboard!
