The drought is over and Vikings football has arrived! The Houston Texans visit the Vikings at Mall of America field for the first preseason game of the 2013 season.

We will have our live chats set up here at VT once the regular season rolls around, but for now, an open thread during the game for commenting is the route we’ll take.

Yes, it’s just Preseason. Yes, the guys will just be knocking the rust off tonight. Yet, I’m smiling ear-to-ear because football is officially back.

Enjoy the game! Go Vikes!
