Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 7/30

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

It's that day again, ladies and gentlemen!

Also, after a day off, the Minnesota Vikings will be back out on the field in Mankato for Training Camp with two sessions today. We will have full coverage here on the site for you to follow along with at the appropriate time.

Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .

-The pink Escalade that Teddy Bridgewater gave to his mother, Rose, is no longer pink. But it's still awesome.

-Blah blah Vikings blah blah Kluwe blah blah lawyers blah blah.

-CCNorseman (who will be part of the team in Mankato today) got a chance to sit down and talk with a Packers site about the Vikings' upcoming season.

-Ted also got an opportunity for an interview with the folks from KATE in Albert Lea, Minnesota.

From some other sources around the internet. . .

-Adrian Peterson is happy that the Vikings offense will be more versatile than it has in past years.

-Peterson's backup, Matt Asiata, has also turned a few heads this week.

-Defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd looks ready for his opportunity to take over for Kevin Williams.

-Punter Jeff Lock hopes to improve by taking the Nuke Laloosh approach to his job, which involves thinking a lot less.

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 (with spoiler tags, if necessary), and keep the GIFs relatively work-safe.

Random music week continues.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for Hump Day, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day, and we'll have our Training Camp thread up and running in a few hours.
