OMG HIS ARMS ARE SO SHORT HOW IS HE EVEN HOLDING UP HIS JERSEY!? - Al Bello

It's May Day, everybody! Time to start a brand new month here at your favorite Minnesota Vikings website. With not a whole lot going on between now and the start of Training Camp in approximately. . .looks at calendar. . .89 days? Oh, man. . .in any event, we'll find stuff to talk about between now and then.

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

-In case you missed it, Ted interviewed Bud Grant the other day. (I know, I know. . .but it's that awesome, people.)

-We heard you like to look at draft grades. . .so we got you some draft grades to add to your draft grades so you can look at draft grades while you're looking at draft grades.

-Did you know that Sharrif Floyd's arms are really, really short? Because they are, you know.

From other outposts around the internet. . .

-Ben Goessling of the St. Paul Pioneer Press talks to new backup quarterback Matt Cassel.

-The Vikings also waived converted point guard Nick Taylor, who was injured in camp last year.

-Here's a look at Zach Line, one of the many undrafted free agents the Vikings signed and last year's Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year.

And here's a look at one of the Vikings' draftees, the man they call "Tree Top," guard Travis Bond.

-People are already asking for souvenirs from the Metrodome's demolition, which isn't slated to start until early in 2014.

Your ambient music for today, ladies and gentlemen.


And, with that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for Wednesday, folks! Remember the rules. . .no bad language, no religion, and no politics. Remember, people might be reading this at work and stuff.
