Happy Wednesday, everyone!
I’m off work tomorrow (and Friday, so TODAY IS MY FRIDAY!!!!!!), so I won’t be around as kiddo and I have a big day planned. Therefore, I want to take a minute now to thank all of our veterans out there. Without them, we wouldn’t have the freedoms that we enjoy and that we far too often take for granted. If you see a veteran this week (or any time of year), take a minute to thank them.
We’re inching closer and closer to Sunday and the Minnesota Vikings’ next game, as they travel to
San Diego Los Angeles to take on the Chargers. I expect the Vikes to play tough. I have no clue whether they’ll actually hang on to a lead, though. It has to happen one of these weeks, doesn’t it? Let’s hope. SKOL!!!!!!!!!!!
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Dalvin Cook’s ex-girlfriend filed a lawsuit alleging physical and emotional abuse.
Dalvin Cook is the victim of domestics abuse and extortion, according to a report.
I’m going to withhold judgement on this until we know what happened. I did find this piece that gives a little insight into the situation.
GASkol asks you to nominate the Nincompoop of the Week: Week 9 (Ravens).
Luft Krigare posted CTP Mondays - What’s Next?.
Other Vikings/NFL news and random oddities and annoyances:
From the NY Times, the Packers, as well as A-a-ron Rodgers and Lazzard were fined for Covid violations. A slap on the wrist, akin to fining one of us a nickel.
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.
