NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Minnesota Vikings Matt Krohn-USA TODAY Sports

We made it through another week, ladies and gentlemen, and we’ve got Minnesota Vikings football tomorrow, too! How much better does it get than that? Not much, that’s for damn sure.

Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .

  • Vikings Happy Hour talked about their final roster predictions.
  • The Vikings won’t be signing J.C. Tretter to play center. But neither will anyone else, because he retired on Thursday.
  • We got hosed out of the “punt off” that we were promised on Saturday, as the Vikings released veteran punter Jordan Berry in favor of UDFA rookie Ryan Wright.
  • The Vikings don’t know. . .at least they’re telling us they don’t know. . .whether or not newly-acquired Nick Mullens will see the field on Saturday.

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.
