Minnesota Vikings News And Links, 6/7

USA TODAY Sports

It's Friday again, everybody! And that means that we're just that much closer to the start of some real football news, as the Minnesota Vikings will be starting Training Camp a mere seven weeks from today at Winter Park. Quite frankly, I'm not sure that it can go quickly enough for my liking.

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

-We moved up a FanPost from JeffroTheVike about how, exactly, you came to be a Vikings fan.

-Ted took a look at some Vikings players that have a chance to break out in 2013.

-It looks like the Vikings are putting the starting guard spots up for grabs.

-We have a look at everything the National Football League is going to be doing for the next twelve months.

From some other outposts across the internet. . .

-The team's official website has a Q&A about the experience the new stadium will bring.

-Also from the team's official website, some of the best plays of yesterday's OTA session.

-The Vikings are apparently looking at the possibility of using Joe Webb on punt returns.

Once again, the rules of the Open Thread are the same. . .no politics, no religion, no bad language, and please don't feed the trolls.

Our week of cover songs wraps up this week with another instance of both versions of the song being pretty good (and, incidentally, one that came from the comments of yesterday's Open Thread). I know I've used the original before, because it's one of my favorite videos ever.


And now the cover version, courtesy of one of my favorite bands from today.


Disturbed. . .good, good stuff right there.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for a Friday, everybody! Enjoy hanging out with your fellow Vikings fans, and we'll have more for you as the day goes on.
