Minnesota Vikings News And Links, 3/20

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

Happy hump day, everybody! There wasn't a whole lot of news here yesterday, but in case you missed it.

-The Minnesota Vikings signed former Indianapolis Colts guard Seth Olsen yesterday. We don't know much about him, but we know who he's not.

-It turns out that Greg Jennings might have gotten some sage advice when he was deciding whether to sign with Minnesota or not.

Also, time is running out for you to join the Daily Norseman NCAA Basketball Tournament pool. Be sure to jump on it before the tournament tips off on Thursday!

From other outposts around the internet. . .

-Tom Pelissero of ESPN 1500 looks at one aspect of Greg Jennings' game where he has a marked advantage over the departed Percy Harvin

-Pelissero, who is at the NFL Owners' Meetings this week in Phoenix, has a Q&A with Rick Spielman up on 1500 ESPN as well.

-According to ESPN's fantasy football folks, Jennings is still a top wide receiver (despite all the DERP Christian Ponder DERP that's been going around since the signing was announced)

-ESPN's Kevin Seifert takes a look at the future of punter Chris Kluwe, who is going into the last year of his contract

-Electronic bingo has joined electronic pull-tabs as a funding source for the new Vikings stadium

-The Vikings are also hammering out some of the logistics for this season's London trip

Rules of the open thread are the same as they ever were. . .no religion, no politics, and minimal amounts of bad language. Other than that, every topic is fair game here.

We continue our "money" theme for today's ambient music.


With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Wednesday, ladies and gentlemen. We'll have some more stuff for you over the course of the day today, so keep a browser tab pointed right here.
