We have made it all the way through the month of July, ladies and gentlemen, and in just about two weeks we will be watching the first preseason game of the year for our Minnesota Vikings as they head to the big Roomba in the desert to take on the Las Vegas Raiders. There’s plenty going on before that, though!
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
- We asked Football Outsiders what the strengths and weaknesses of this year’s team are as part of our series for this week.
- The team has announced that Jared Allen will be the next member of the Vikings to be inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor.
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.
