Tuesday Open Thread: May 10, 2016

All the latest and greatest about your Vikings and the rest of the NFL.

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Merry Tuesday everyone! We've made it through another day of the off-season. There's a little news from training camp today, so at least there's SOME football action to report.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Teddy Bridgewater was the Vikings' top merchandise seller of 2015.

Turf installation has begun at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Vikings signed Stoudermire and Robinson, but no punters.

Randy Moss is going to be moving to ESPN.

Vikings news from elsewhere:

From Vikings.com:

Here are full highlights from Vikings rookie minicamp, day 2.

Adrian Peterson told Peter King that the Vikings have a good chance to win it all this year. I agree!

Wobby opened up the Monday Morning Mailbag.

Around the NFL:

From NFL.com, the Lions acquired LB Jon Bostic in a trade with the Patriots.

NFL.com reported that Melvin Gordon underwent microfracture surgery.

Twins update:

Duffey looked pretty good, but the offense didn't......again. The Twins lost to the White Sox, 1-3. The loss made it a 3 game sweep at home for the Twins, which isn't good.

With that, we come to today's media selection. Here's one of my favorite plays of all time, I remember watching this & going bonkers when it happened.

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 blood sausage.
