Wednesday Open Thread: October 13, 2021

OH NO, IT’S WEDNESDAY THE 13TH! AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GENERAL INFORMATION: 10/1/01 - Minneapolis, MN Minnesota Vikings vs. Tampa bay at the Metrodome IN THIS PHOTO: Randy Moss makes a thirty-nine yard reception during the third quarter. The Vikings scored a tocuhdown several plays later, but it was null

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Alright, it’s finally the peak of this slow work week. I, for one, am looking forward to Sunday’s game. For some reason, I have a feeling it’s going to go well for the purple, we’ll see if I’m correct in a few short days.

Hey! The Braves are moving on to the NLCS! Freddie Freeman launched one into orbit to put the good guys up 5-4, and they sealed the W to take the series from the Brewers. They’ll take on either the Giants or the Dodgers in the NLCS, and from where it stands at the moment, it looks like it’s likely going to be the Giants. Awesome!

Around the DN since our last open thread:

GASkol posted the Nincompoop of the Week: Week 5 (Lions). @There shouldn’t be any nincompoops after a win, right?@

Holy podcasts, Batman! reidellr4 posted Unbelievable! - Just Good Enough, Luft Krigare posted CTP Mondays - Turning Point or Nah?, and Arif posted Norse Code Podcast Episode 392: In Spite of Ourselves.

Other Vikings/NFL news and random oddities and annoyances:

From PFT, the Dolphins designate Tua Tagovailoa for return from IR. The Dolphins believe Tagovailoa will be ready for their week 6 game in London against the Jaguars.

As I mentioned above. From ESPN, Freddie Freeman launched one to send the Braves to the NLCS.

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 bar light is on and the thread is open. Don’t forget to tip the cows, and try the tiger meat.
