Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Hey, we’re half-way through the week, and only two days away from the Vikings final preseason game. The Vikings travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs on Friday night, kickoff is at 7:00 pm. I really hope to see more life from our passing offense. I get it’s preseason, but they have to do more than they’ve been doing before heading into the regular season.

So, this applies to very few of our commenters, but I’m going to politely ask that you don’t make troll-y comments about subjects that easily become contentious. The reason the community here is attractive to others is because we don’t have the flame wars that are common on some of the least desirable sites, so please, let’s stop this before it really starts, por favor, and gracias.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

With answers to ALL of life’s questions, Rob opened the Daily Norseman Mailbag.

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 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. Oh, and Welcome Aboard!!!!!
