Minnesota Vikings News And Links, 4/16


Welcome to Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. Hopefully all of you that needed to get your taxes filed got them in before the midnight deadline. This is your Open Thread for today, where the rules are still no religion, no politics, and minimal amounts of bad language.

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

-Ted wondered whether or not we may have seen the Minnesota Vikings' new uniforms. . .in cake form.

-Ted also speculated about whether or not it's time for the team to move on from Joe Webb. (Yes, about three months ago.)

-We got the heartbreaking news that Sunday Night Football will no longer feature Faith Legs. . .er, Hill.

-And we brought you our second-round pick in the SB Nation Writers Mock Draft.

At other outposts around the internet. . .

-The folks at Cincy Jungle have reached the first of Minnesota's two picks in their Community Mock Draft. Go see who they took!

-Fox Sports North tells us that the Vikings feel pretty confident about their offensive tackle position (and so they should).

-ESPN's Kevin Seifert doesn't think the Vikings' new stadium will have a retractable roof, and makes the argument that it isn't terribly worthwhile anyway.

-Former Vikings' quarterback Tarvaris Jackson played a role in the Vikings receiving that extra seventh-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Your ambient music to continue this tax week.

. . .then they hand me
That little brown envelope
I peep inside, Lord I lose all hope

'Cause from those total wages earned
Down to the net amount that's due
I feel the painful sense of loss between the two

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for a Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy your day, and we'll have more stuff here for you as the day goes on.
