Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 6/30

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

It's the last day of June, ladies and gentlemen. . .and it's probably going to be a short week for most folks out there, so let's go ahead and get to it.

EDIT: For a couple of different reasons, I have had to take down the post for the Training Camp fundraiser. My apologies.


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

-Ted took a look at what the Minnesota Vikings have to work with at their weakest position from last season, the linebacker corps.

-The team will use the north sideline at TCF Bank Stadium the next couple of seasons, because strategery and stuff.

-Randy Moss has started a new career as a football coach.

-NFL.com has been putting together lists. . .there are Vikings to be found on both the All-90s Team and the All-Rookie Team.

-If you're looking for some Vikings-themed gifts, Etsy is a good place to start.

The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've ever been, ladies and gentlemen. . .no politics, no religion, no feeding of the trolls, keep the language relatively clean (using spoiler tags, if necessary), and keep the GIFs relatively work-safe.

We're shifting gears with our musical selections this week, thanks to a suggestion I got from Skol Girl. (You remember her, right? She does most of her work over at our FaceBook page now, which is linked up above there.) Since this is the season for "blockbuster" summer movies, she suggested a week of films from those sorts of movies. We can always come back to TV themes or whatever else later, so we'll roll with that for this week.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Monday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day!
