Happy Thursday morning, everybody! The Minnesota Vikings will be reporting to Training Camp in just two short weeks, which means we may actually have something to talk about. On the downside, our big interview got pushed back. . .again. Hopefully it will get knocked out today and we can have it up sometime tomorrow, but at the rate this is going, I'm not going to hold my breath.
Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .
-Four members. . .current or former. . .of the Minnesota Vikings were named to the NFL.com All-Freshman team.
-The NFL's Supplemental Draft is today. You don't care. In all likelihood, neither does the NFL.
From some other sources around the internet. . .
-Despite having injury issues this past season, running back Adrian Peterson still came in at #4 on the NFL Network's Top 100 list.
-The fundraiser for Training Camp continues. The goal has almost been met, so if you want to contribute, do so soon!
-We told you yesterday that Cordarrelle Patterson wants to be one of the top 5 playmakers in football this year. The folks from Grantland think he already is.
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 (using spoiler tags if necessary), and keep the GIFs relatively work-safe.
Another one from the folks at Cinema Sins for our entertainment today, this one featuring one of my all-time favorite movies.
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Thursday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day!
