Minnesota Vikings News And Links, 6/18


Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome back to your home for Minnesota Vikings coverage. The Vikings start their mandatory mini-camp today, so hopefully we can get some stories out of that for your reading enjoyment.

We only brought you a couple of stories yesterday. . .one was about how the Vikings are open to the idea of playing more games overseas over the course of the next couple of seasons.

The big one, however, was the kickoff of nominations for our Greatest Viking Of All Time tournament, and you folks have come through with flying colors on that one. There have been over 100 different individuals nominated for our potential field of 64, so there are going to be plenty of folks left out. The nomination process has a couple more days left, but a lot of the pertinent names have already been nominated, I think. You can still rec people in order to increase their seeding, however.

From other places around the internet. . .

-Apparently former Packers linebacker Desmond Bishop is going to be visiting with the Vikings, so dust off your DERP VIKINGS SIGNING THE PACKERS LEFTOVERS DERP lines, I guess.

-Antoine Winfield decided that he wasn't returning to Minnesota roughly 15 seconds after he was released. (So much for having a decision to make there at the end, I guess.)

-Minnesota is still pushing for e-gaming to help with the stadium funding.

The rules for the Open Thread are the same as they've ever been. . .no politics, no religion, no bad language, and please don't feed the trolls.

For today's song, another one that's a bit of an oldie.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. We will effort to have more news for you later on.
