Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 2 January 2023

The new year is here!

Was there a football game yesterday? Huh. . .who knew?

We’re getting ready for the 2022 regular-season finale for the Minnesota Vikings, as they’ll face a familiar opponent in the Chicago Bears, hoping to complete the sweep for this season. They’re likely going to be the #3 seed in the NFC playoffs, which still means that they’re getting a home playoff game for the first time since the 2017 Divisional Round, and that’s pretty awesome, eh?

So, here’s your first Open Thread of 2023. Enjoy!

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.
