Thursday Open Thread: October 4th

1 post in this topic

2018 Good Morning!Hope your work week is going well, I’m fully engaged with my new job so words and links will be limited at times depending on my schedule.I noted much discussion yesterday about marriage (congratulations warrior80) with some of you not onboard with putting a ring on it (credit to Beyonce) therefore I have a media selection just for you.In the meantime, while we’re waiting for the next Vikings game to start we’ll continue with our thread full of beer and rib recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Have another cup of coffee and drop by for some fan wisdom and snark. With that, let’s do this.Around the DN since our last thread:Chris and Eric have a spot where you can keep up with all the Vikings-Eagles news.From Chris via Bill Barnwell of ESPN Anthony Barr is among 2018’s most disappointing players.The injury report Wednesday from Chris with Dalvin Cook and Trae Waynes missing practice.J.T. Brown, son of Ted Brown, to make Minnesota Wild debut Thursday.Lucas says Vikings fans: It’s okay to be upset, (Lucas must not peak into the cesspool that is the Open Threads).From Outsports the Minnesota Vikings partner with local gay flag football league.Vikings news from other sources:From Vikings.com Head Coach Mike Zimmer addressed the media from the TCO Performance Center on Wednesday.QB Kirk Cousins addressed the media from the TCO Performance Center on Wednesday.CB Xavier Rhodes addressed the media from the TCO Performance Center on Wednesday.How to watch and listen to the Vikings at Eagles in week five, (I’ve already seen the bad news as to who will be in the broadcast booth).From their lunch break series: the Vikings present an early crossroad for the 2-2 Eagles.League news: Aaron Rodgers downplays any rift with Mike McCarthy.New England TE Rob Gronkowski (ankle) questionable against Colts.Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill eager for matchup vs. Jalen Ramsey.Jimmy Garoppolo undergoes surgery on torn ACL.Oakland Raiders place Donald Penn (groin) on injured reserve.We come to today’s media selection: Cast of “Hee Haw” - Gloom Despair And Agony On Me (marriage, money)Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:-No discussion of politics or religion-No feeding of the trolls-This isn’t a male version of The View, so 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.Tuesday Open Thread: September 11, 2018 Merry Tuesday, everyone!It’s September 11, and we all know what happened on this day, 17 years ago. I think it’s important to use today as a day of thanksgiving, to be thankful for the men and women who defend our nation and the freedoms we enjoy. Today particularly reminds me to include not only our soldiers, but also those in the law enforcement community, and in fire and rescue. Some folks do jobs that others would not want to do Minnesota Vikings Womens T-Shirt , or would not be able to do, and place themselves in harm’s way to protect others. If you are one of those people, I sincerely thank you.That being said, I’ll use part of my freedom to be happy that the Vikings are 1-0. Lions fans, if Chim or any others are reading today, I can only say that I feel for you after last night’s..........game?. Ouch. If it helps any, which it probably won’t, the Vikings opened the 2015 season with an absolute sulphur fart of a game against the 49ers on Monday Night Football (there were lots of 2-14 predictions from some fans on here the next day), and the Vikings wound up finishing the season at 11-5 and brought home the NFCNorth crown. Now, the Lions won’t be able to win the division, as that crown must stay in Minnesota, but the Lions can still turn things around. It’s only one game. It was friggin’ horrendous, though.Around the DN since our last open thread:Ted brings back Zim Tzu for 2018.Eric highlights five game-changing plays from Sunday’s match-up.just_rob had a preview and game thread for last night’s “game”. Doing a game thread for division rival games seems to be a success. Excellent idea, rob.Wludford shares the “report” that A-a-ron Rodgers suffered a mild MCL sprain. I tend to question any diagnosis that is based solely on TV footage, regardless of how many years the diagnoser had a stethoscope hanging around their neck. (Before anyone starts yelling at me, I know that diagnoser is not a word. I just made it up, but I also used it, so it is now a word......in my world) No word from Rodgers or the Packers yet, but you can bet that Rodgers will play up the injury for all he can, and Joe Buck will be gushing like a 14 year-old girl at a Beatles concert any time Rodgers completes a pass & fakes a limp.Ted has an injury update on Trae Waynes, and the move to IR for Collins along with his replacement’s signing.Wludford has some takeaways from Sundays win against the 49ers. No, wludford didn’t steal a urinal from Levi’s Stadium, he just learned a few things from seeing the game, that’s what I meant by takeaways.Ted looks at how Mike Hughes stepped in when his team needed him, then stepped up big-time.Vikings news from other sources and news from around the rest of the league:At Vikings.com, Rudolph and Cousins both shared some exciting news recently Minnesota Vikings Hats , in addition to the victory on Sunday. Both players’ families are expecting. Congrats to both of them, that’s great news. Also at Vikings.com, catch Coach Zimmer’s Monday presser, and see Daniel Jeremiah on the NFL Network as he breaks down game film from Sunday’s game.Fox Sports looks at the extra dimension that Dalvin Cook brings to the offense.After being trounced in game one, the Bills have not decided who will start at QB for game 2, per NFL.com.Sam Darnold shook off an early mistake, and had a huge night for the Jets, from NFL.com.We come to today’s media selection:I know I’ve played this before. More than once, actually, but it has been quite a while, and this still makes me laugh every time I watch it. I don’t know why watching drunk people do drunk things makes me giggle, but it does, and this might be the best drunk person video I’ve seen. (atching this also reminds me to be thankful that there weren’t cameras everywhere back in my younger and much wilder days). Enjoy!Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:No discussion of politics or religionNo feeding of the trollsThis isn’t a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the doorKeep 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 tagsNo pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employerIf you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go awayWhile navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasmWith that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, and try the tiger meat
