Monday Open Thread: February 29, 2016

This day only happens once every four years, better come in and enjoy.

Welcome to your leap-year day open thread.

'Round these parts since our last open thread:

Everson Griffen won't be having shoulder surgery.

Chris posted the Combine weigh-in results for the defensive backs. Also, the workout results for the quarterbacks, the running backs, the wide receivers, the tight ends, the offensive linemen, the defensive linemen, and linebackers.

Ted fired up the DN Mailbag. Send your Vikings related questions to the DN via twitter at #DN Mailbag, or email ted at

Vikings news from elsewhere:


Mike Mayock evaluates the top offensive linemen after the combine performances.

Maryland DB praised Stefon Diggs' route running. Glad I'm not the only one impressed by it.

Bud Grant said that the years Mike Zimmer spent as an assistant is helping him lead the Vikings.

News from around the league:


What we learned from Day 3 of the NFL Scouting Combine.

The Eagles have increased their offer to Sam Bradford.

Many NFL clubs are saying that the knee injury of Jaylon Smith's 'is bad'.

From CBS Sports, a wardrobe malfunction resulted in the most embarrassing 40 ever for a DT prospect.

With that, we come to today's media selection. Kiddo didn't sleep last night, so neither did I, so I have zero creative juices this morning. I'm going to post my favorite drunk guy ever again, as he's always a hit.

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 tiger meat.
