We’ve made it to the weekend, folks! Well, almost. . .we still have to get through today. But at least you’ve got a place to hang out with your fellow Minnesota Vikings fans to talk about basically anything you’d like while we make our way there and onto Championship Sunday in the National Football League.

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

  • Vikings Happy Hour is talking about the dawn of a new Vikings defense.
  • Chris looks at why the Vikings should think about trading for Trey Lance. . .and why they shouldn’t.
  • Mark has a look at this weekend’s East-West Shrine 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.
