Minnesota Vikings News and Links: December 11th, 2020

Weekend Eve Open Thread

Good Morning, It’s Friday!

We’re two days away from another Vikings win towards another playoff berth...or we’re two days away from another loss and fire everyone; whatever fits your narrative. Looking at the Buccaneers I don’t think the Vikings match up well, particularly against the Bucs defensive line, but I’m usually wrong so pay me no attention. 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 Friday, time to get the smoker ready for the weekend, and invite me over since I’ll be working.

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!
