It's Thirsty Thorsday, everyone! Grab a drinking horn, fill it up, & join in the convo.

'Round here since our last open thread:

Arif posted Norse Code #126: Fantasy with (Sigmund) Bloom & Doom.

Rich Gannon has left SiriusXM NFL Radio.

So, you had a bad (pro) day, posted by Chris. Thanks Chris, now that song is stuck in my head.

Supa has a really nice breakdown of the reaction to Treadwell's 40 time.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings.com, Zimmer said pass rushing and coverage are crucial to a dangerous defense.

Matt Miller predicts the Vikings' first round pick, from Vikings.com.

Around the rest of the league:

From NFL.com, a German wide receiver is one of the NFL draft's biggest sleepers.

The Lions signed OL Geoff Schwartz.

Percy Harvin is definitely playing in 2016, and has contacted at least 3 teams. What do you think, DN? Do you think Coach Zimmer is interested? It'd be pretty damn intriguing to see him back in purple.

Twins update:

Dozier continued to light it up offensively, and the Twins downed the Blue Jays, 4-3. I don't know about you, but I'm ready for baseball season to begin. I CAN'T WAIT for the Braves/Twins series in July, already have the vacation time lined up.

With that, we come to today's media selection. Thanks again, ChCHOF5yearstoolate for the suggestion on today's music. I actually dig this stuff you've been suggesting, so keep it coming. Between you and southparkskolman, you're giving me lots of new music to listen to and saving me time on finding things to put up here. Thanks!

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 chitlins.
