It’s the weekend, ladies and gentlemen, and later today (Saturday), we’ll be seeing the Minnesota Vikings take the field once again, as they’ll hit the U.S. Bank Stadium turf for the first time since January to host the San Francisco 49ers. We’ll have the Open Thread for today’s game up about half an hour before kickoff, so keep an eye out for that, but this is the place for all your normal Open Thread chicanery.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
- The folks that responded to our SB Nation Reacts poll overwhelmingly want Kellen Mond to be the team’s QB2 this season.
- Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch or listen to tonight’s game.
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.
