Your daily open thread is open for business!

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Thorsday, everyone! The weekend is almost upon us. Stay strong, we're almost there.

Around here since our last open thread:

Arif posted Podcast #125: Talking WRs with NFL.com's Matt Harmon.

Chris is dutifully maintaining the Minnesota Vikings 2016 Free Agency Tracker.

Chris informed us that there's a "Re-sign Chad Greenway" song.

There may be another overseas opportunity for the Vikings in 2018.

Vikings news from elsewhere:

Vikings.com has Mike Zimmer's full NFL meetings press conference.

Vikings.com also postedtheir latest owners meetings roundup.

Zimmer also said that he doesn't expect any letdown from Adrian Peterson next season, per Vikings.com.

NFL Spin Zone posted a 7-round mock draft for the Vikings.

From the Strib, Coach Zimmer feels the revamped O line will key the offensive turnaround.

Around the rest of the NFL:

Aaron Rodgers shared a tale of a UFO sighting, from NFL.com.

CBS Sports reported that the NFL implemented a huge new touchback rule, but they also admitted that it could backfire.

There was also an automatic ejection rule passed, per NFL.com.

Twins update:

Nolasco pitched well, but the bullpen didn't, and the offense didn't contribute much of anything. The Twins fell to the Rays, 5-2.

With that, we come to today's media selection. Hey, let's annoy people & hop back into the 80s. Here's 38 Special (a damn good band, in my opinion) with Back Where You Belong.

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 pickled pigs feet.
