Vikings Happy Hour - Real or Mirage?

Ryan steps in to run the conversation with guest Brandon Crockett and Dave talking about what’s up with your Minnesota Vikings.

The Cleveland Browns came to town, and it was bad for the hometown Minnesota Vikings. Their record is presently 1-3 and in third place in the division. Luck has it that the team with the worst record in the division comes to town on Sunday. The Dan Campbell-led Detroit Lions and their injured but still feisty selves will try and send the “Fire Mike Zimmer” talk into overdrive. Joining us at the bar tonight is a friend of the show, Brandon Crockett. The festivities will surely [or Surly] ensue.

Grab your favorite beverage and join the conversation!
