We've almost made it through the entire month of May, ladies and gentlemen. That means we're a little less than two months away from the start of Training Camp (which will officially get underway on July 25), and that much closer to the 2013 NFL season. Believe me when I say that it can't possibly get here fast enough.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-The Minnesota Vikings, and specifically head coach Leslie Frazier and running back Adrian Peterson, showed their support for those searching for a missing girl in Iowa.
-The team also completed their 90-man roster (for the time being) by signing linebacker Stanford Keglar, who has been out of the NFL since just before the 2011 regular season.
From some other outposts around the internet. . .
-Speaking of Peterson, he says he's "pretty much 100%" after his off-season hernia surgery.
-The only player not attending the OTAs at Winter Park this week is defensive end Jared Allen. (No reason to panic. . .he never attends these things.)
-Defensive tackle Kevin Williams thinks he's still "top dog" at his position.
The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've ever been, ladies and gentlemen. No politics, no religion, no bad language, and don't feed the trolls. Otherwise, pretty much any topic you can think of is available for discussion.
For today's ambient music, another video built around the concept of "let's see just how much talent we can cram on the same stage at the same time."
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for a Thursday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy your day, and we'll have some more stuff for you here as the day goes on.
