We've hit another Monday, ladies and gentlemen. I know you're every bit as excited as I am for this.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-Teddy Bridgewater is going to get some first-team reps when the Vikings start OTAs next week.
-Arif was at rookie camp for the Vikings this weekend. . .not as a player. . .and brought us some stories on two guys that were there. Here's his take on running back Jerick McKinnon, and here's one on undrafted free agent tackle Antonio "Tiny" Richardson.
-Mike Zimmer cares not for how many jerseys you've sold. . .you still have to earn your spot.
-Because of academic rules, three of the Vikings' draftees are going to miss the early portion of OTAs.
-The Vikings' draft class has chosen their uniform numbers. Some of these will probably be subject to change.
From some other sources around the internet. . .
-The Vikings' quarterback situation is a "perfect storm," according to Lyndy's Sports Annuals.
-If you need more reasons to believe in Teddy Bridgewater, Kick-Ass Blog has a pretty good list of articles you need to read.
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 bad language to a minimum (with spoiler tags, if necessary), and keep the GIFs relatively work-safe.
For today's musical selection, I referenced this on Twitter after seeing that David Yankey had chosen #66. It's an awesome song, so enjoy.
I may just do all Iron Maiden songs this week, because. . .well, why not?
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Monday, ladies and gentlemen. Have a good rest of your day, and we should have more for you later on.
