Minnesota Vikings News And Links, 4/17

Bruce Kluckhohn-US PRESSWIRE

Here we are in the middle of another week, ladies and gentlemen. This is your Open Thread for Wednesday, and the rules haven't changed. No talking about religion or politics, and not a lot of bad language.

Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .

-Defensive tackle Kevin Williams restructured his deal to give the Minnesota Vikings a bit more breathing room under the salary cap.

-We informed you of the death of legendary play-by-play man Pat Summerall at the age of 82.

-Kyle summed up our response to Monday's events in Boston.

-Arif continued making his way through the wide receivers that will be available in this year's NFL Draft.

-We let you know that finally. . .finally. . .editable comments are coming to all your favorite SB Nation sites.

-And Arif kept you up to date on what's going on with Curtis James, the center from St. Thomas that he interviewed a while back.

From other outposts around the internet. . .

-Arrowhead Pride, SB Nation's site for the Kansas City Chiefs, has made the first selection for the Vikings in their Community Mock Draft.

-ESPN's Kevin Seifert projects that the Vikings are headed for a full-on makeover on the defensive line.

-And the Minnesota Vikings are allowing the fans to cast votes for who they would like to see on this year's cheerleading squad. If you're into that kind of thing. . .and, if the past has told me anything, you pretty much are if you're reading this. . .you can do that right here.

Another tax-themed selection for our ambient music for today. . .which is awesome, by the way. The music selection, I mean.

I've gotta play some one-night stands.

Six for the tax man and one for the band.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for Wednesday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day, and we'll have more good stuff for you as the day moves along.
