Good Morning!

This is your Friday Open Thread, much is being made of will he/won’t he play regarding Dak Prescott but either way I think one of the keys to the Vikings winning the game Sunday is limiting the Cowboys running game. At the start of the 2nd half the Cardinals are not winning and I’m going to bed. LFG Cardinals.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

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.
