Minnesota Vikings News and Links: Thursday, July 22, 2021
I’m sure you’re wondering why the main photo is from a football game … in Toronto. The Wilf family have finalized the purchase of Orlando City Soccer Club and NWSL Pride, which means I can continue to laugh at all those who hate futbol and try to put Gone Fishin to sleep when he opens the thread. Thorsday. With only a few days left before training camp, this year fans will be able to go see the training sessions, if you go, let us know what you think.
Meanwhile, we’ll continue with our news and links full of slow cooker recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; pass for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s thorsday, one more day until the eve of the weekend.

– Speaking of which, if you are discussing a more recent show or movie, please use the spoiler tags
-No photos that could get someone fired or have serious problems with their employer
-If you cannot disagree in a civil way, do not hesitate to go away
-As you navigate the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
