UPDATE: Here's the link to our chat.

To our readers,

I hope you're enjoying the new SportsWire layout. We've extended the headlines space down the page so you can more easily get all your Minnesota sports news in one place.

Another cool thing we're doing with the website this year: We'll be doing Vikings chats on game days. They're a place for readers to gather and discuss the Vikings game. Please, no yelling. We want to cultivate a productive atmosphere where you can all enjoy the games a little bit more.

If you have thoughtful discussion to offer, please, join 1500 ESPN Vikings reporter Andrew Krammer (@Andrew_Krammer) and me (@DerekWetmore) this Sunday for the Vikings season opener against the Detroit Lions.

Of course, you can always tweet in using the hashtag #1500ESPNLive. We'll grab your tweets and post them to our chat. We'll be posting a discussion forum, our thoughts, some pictures from game day and halftime and postgame videos.

We're looking forward to many exciting changes on the website in the coming months, and live chats may be one of the coolest things we'll do to tweak Vikings coverage. We'll sure enjoy it. We hope you do, too.
