Tuesday Open Thread: November 16, 2021

4-5 is a helluva lot better than 3-6

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Los Angeles Chargers Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

We’re moving along through the week, inching ever closer to what may be the Minnesota Vikings’ biggest game of the year up to this point, as they will host the Packers on Sunday. A win on Sunday moves the team to .500 and only two games behind the NFC North leader. That’s a tall order considering the opponent, but as we’ve learned, this team has a legitimate shot at beating any opponent. Unfortunately, this team also has a legitimate shot at losing to any opponent. Let’s hope they can build on Sunday’s win and show up strong this Sunday. SKOL!!!

Around the DN since our last open thread:

GASkol brings you his Minnesota Vikings Weekly Player Recap: Week 10, 2021.

From Chris, the Vikings will open as the underdog for the fourth consecutive week.

Other Vikings/NFL news and random oddities and annoyances:

This strange week of NFL football continues. As of this writing, the 49ers are dominating the Rams and lead 24-7, per CBS Sports. I’ll be interested to see how this one turns out.

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.
