Good Morning, It’s Thorsday
Your Thorsday Open Thread is up, running, and ready for business. I had a lot of words up here planned for today based on last week’s game, but since I just finished working I forgot all of them. I think the realization that this current team isn’t very good is starting to sink in with a lot of Vikings fans, and it’s a bitter pill to swallow. Even me, your resident homer had medium to high hopes for the the team this year, but after reviewing the tape I don’t see many wins on the schedule. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s Thorsday - I was informed this is cultural appropriation, but I’m not smart and still don’t know what that means. Shoutout to the Eagles fan who drops by occasionally and caused me to craft the verbiage about Thorsday.
