Minnesota Vikings News And Links, 7/17

USA TODAY Sports

We've hit another hump day, ladies and gentlemen, and we're only nine days away from the start of Minnesota Vikings training camp for 2013! In the meantime, we have some more stuff here for your reading pleasure.

Yesterday, we had two more match-ups in our Greatest Viking Of All Time Tournament, with Bud Grant taking on Steve Jordan and Fran Tarkenton going against Keith Millard. Neither of those match-ups are really in suspense or anything. . .not surprisingly. . .but if you want to get your vote in, you still have about an hour or so. The next two match-ups will be up at that time as well.

From some other places across the internet. . .

-Yahoo! Sports takes a look at the Vikings' salary cap situation.

-Wide receiver Greg Jennings was interviewed by the folks at ESPN yesterday. (Several points for the interview, minus several million points for not punching either Skip Bayless, Stephen A. Smith, or both.)

-Turns out that Larry Fitzgerald is a Minnesota Vikings fan. Can you blame him?

The rules of the Open Thread are the same as always, ladies and gentlemen. No politics, no religion, no feeding of the trolls, and keep the bad language to a minimum/use the spoiler tags if you're going to curse.

We stay with our theme for this week's ambient music. . .


With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for Wednesday, ladies and gentlemen! We'll have some more stuff for you later on today, so keep your eyes open.
