Real football is finally here! Sort of. It's real pretend football! Can you taste it?
The Minnesota Vikings take on the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight in the first pre-season game of the 2015 NFL season. While it's not the real football we're all so eagerly anticipating, it's a little something to whet our appetite and keep us mildly satisfied.
Which means it's also time for our first open game thread of the 2015 season! So come join all of your fellow Saints fans as we watch the game together and work out those pre-season open thread kinks.
If you're interested in a little history of the Hall of Fame game as it relates to the Saints, check out Hans' post from two years ago with all the info.
