Made it to the end of another week folks, now enjoy your Friday and the weekend!

Mark has his latest mock out.
Ted wrote the latest edition of the DN mailbag.
Around the Horns:
Vikings Journal: Zimmer has thrown down a gauntlet to the Vikings' offense. For those bored at work, they've got mock drafts for you to run on your own. Offensive line v. wide receiver is a question Vikings fans have another month before they find the answer to.
Star Tribune: How will the new rule changes affect the Vikings? Cordarrelle Patterson still has a chance at wide receiver according to Sid Hartman. The Vikings are still in contact with Chad Greenway about a return.
Battle news from the heathen:
In what I can only assume is a god-given gift, Aaron Rodgers appears to have seen a UFO in 2005.
The 49ers apparently skipped three months of rent on Levi's Stadium.
Kevin Turner, former fullback for the Eagles and Patriots, has died from ALS.
Minnesota Sports update:
The Minnesota Wild are still kicking in the Western Conference playoff race, and they have taken a three-point lead over the Colorado Avalanche after the Wild's 6-2 win over the Calgary Flames last night and with Colorado's loss to the Flyers. The Wild received a first-period hat trick from Zach Parise in the victory, and won handily despite being outshot by Calgary. The Wild return to the ice for possibly their biggest game yet, a Saturday afternoon game in Colorado against the Aves. Puck drop is at 2:00 p.m. CT.
The Twins had a rather handy victory of their own yesterday, defeating the Miami Marlins 8-4. Oswaldo Arcia hit two home runs and Danny Santana tripled and drove in two runs. The Twins return to action this afternoon against the Tampa Bay Rays; first pitch is at 12:05 CT.
Unless Brad wants to edit in a video, we'll go without a video today.
