Merry Tuesday, everyone!
Alright, so we are almost upon the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. I’m not sure how y’all do it, but as for me and my family, we shall eat a large quantity of various dead things that I prepare on the smoker. With the current state of affairs, our gathering will be smaller, so our consumption won’t be quite as heavy, but I know that I will be cooking our turkey on the smoker on Thursday, and most likely a triple pig fatty on Friday (Click the link if you haven’t heard of a triple pig fatty, it will change your outlook on life. Also, the Tailgate Master website is a must visit if you own a smoker or a grill, and is owned by an avid Vikings fan and very good man who frequents here occasionally), and I’m still deciding on the menu for the remainder of the weekend. If it wasn’t for my insane metabolism, I would gain roughly 2 and a half tons this coming weekend. I’d love to hear everyone’s food plans for the weekend, feel free to share in the comments. SKOL!

The Vikings path to the playoffs has narrowed considerably. The path has been overgrown with shrubbery and underbrush, they can make it, but they’ll need a compass, a machete, and some thorn proof pants, wludford breaks it down for you.

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

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Take the gender hatred elsewhere, it won’t be tolerated
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-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 waitress (from a minimum of six feet away, of course), and try the head cheese.
