Welcome to the 1500ESPN Livechat, everyone! We've got Vikings beat reporter Andrew Krammer and senior editor Derek Wetmore in house to hold court with you throughout the game. We'll also pull tweets from Judd & Dubay, who will run the Vikings Ventline immediately after today's game.
@Skinnard: It's an open phone line to the station, which callers can call immediately after the game ends. It's a chance to vent about the game (positive or negative) with on-air hosts Judd & Dubay.
Here's the number for the Ventline: 651-646-8255. Or, if you're an out-of-stater, you're welcome here, too: 877-615-1500.
Welcome! The next 20 minutes can't go by soon enough.
