Happy Monday everyone! Football season is finally beginning, so the actual football news should pick up, thankfully.


Those of you with bird feeders will know why I found this amusing.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris looked at special teams in his latest training camp look-ahead.

We got a look at the training camp announcement from 50 years ago.

Chris shared some tweets from Vikings camp reporting day.

Chris was in an NFC North round table discussion, have a listen here.

There was an open thread for day one of training camp.

Josh Robinson was placed on the PUP list.

Chris had some news and notes from camp practice #1.

The Vikings signed kicker Blair Walsh to a contract extension.

The Vikings also placed linebacker Casey Matthews on IR.

Arif has day one of his training camp notebook.

Vikings news from elsewhere around the internet:

Adrian Peterson received a very warm welcome from fans at training camp, from USA Today. Here's a similar story from the 4 letter network.

The Strib recapped what we missed at yesterday's training camp.

Around the rest of the NFL:

Here's an interesting series of tweets by Brandon Marshall; from CBS Sports. Paranoid much?

At, they say Russel Wilson hasn't turned down a Seahawks deal outright, and the Ravens owner denied a report that said he has pressured Goodell.

If you haven't heard about Junior Galette and his twitter rant (actually the twitter account of his girlfriend), you can read about it all over at Canal Street Chronicles, with screenshots of the deleted tweets.

Twins update:

After routing the Yankees on Friday, the Twins lost on Saturday (A-roid hit a game tying HR off Perkins), and again on Sunday.

With that, we come to today's media selection. Let's watch some Teddy highlights, shall we?

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could potentially get someone fired or in serious trouble at their place of employment
-If you can't disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it's sarcasm

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the veal.
