Good morning, everybody! Let's get right into the fun.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-We had a bit of a Derek Carr-fest yesterday, as we made him our selection in the 2014 SB Nation Mock NFL Draft, and Ted had a separate piece that made the case for such a pick.
-As usual, Mark had another in his series of Daily Mock Drafts for your reading pleasure.
-There might not be a whole lot of prime time football played at TCF Bank Stadium over the next two years. Judging by the consensus, we're just fine with that.
-Kyle is attempting to get a draft party together for our Viking fans that live in Florida. Still awaiting confirmation on whether it's a par-tee or a par-tay.
From some other sources around the internet. . .
-Mel Kiper has an opinion on when the Minnesota Vikings should consider drafting a quarterback.
-The Vikings official website has a photo gallery of cheerleader tryouts and you're no longer reading this.
-Our friends at Blogging the Boys have made their selection for the Vikings in their Community Mock Draft.
-Cordarrelle Patterson has declared that the Pro Bowl "did him wrong" this past season.
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, and keep the GIFs relatively work-safe.
For today's musical selection, it's the Prince of f'ing Darkness.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day, and we'll have more for you later on.
