Yes, once again the calendar shows us that it’s Friday here at your favorite Minnesota Vikings website. The NFL preseason slate officially got underway last night with the Hall of Fame Game, and we’re now just nine days away from the purple heading out to the desert to take on the Las Vegas Raiders in their preseason opener.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
- Vikings Happy Hour asked whether or not the Vikings can win the NFC North. (Answer: Yes, they can.)
- A couple of Hall of Fame safeties think that current Vikings star Harrison Smith could definitely join them one day in Canton.
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.
