Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Hey, we’re slowly making our way through the work week, and the Vikings’ next game is only a few short days from now. The team will welcome Indianapolis to US Bank Stadium to take on the Colts this Saturday. Here is the Colts’ unofficial depth chart, courtesy of As always, I’m hoping for no injuries, and I think we can ALL agree that we’d like to see a better showing this Saturday than what we saw last Saturday against the Broncos. Either way, there will be some positional battles to watch. The O-line has some battles going on, as does the QB2 position, where Kellen Mond seems to be challenging Browning for that spot. This game will give guys a shot to move up or down, we’ll see what happens. SKOL!

-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 beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget to tip the cows, and remember that our special on sloth soup begins at 200 comments. Welcome Aboard!
