Hump Daaayyyyyyy! We've made it half-way through another week, and the weekend is within view.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Chris shared the story that according to Bill Barnwell at ESPN, the Vikings had a great off-season.
You can meet Troy Stoudermire at Color Dash 5K this Saturday, per Chris.
Eric shared a story that is sure to draw a chuckle.......or something. ESPN was being ESPN, and said on their Facebook page that the Green Bay Packers are defending NFC North champs.
Vikings news from other sources:
Some of the Vikings participated in the Governor's fishing opener.
Harrison Smith joins Big Brothers Big Sisters for the Saints game.
Everson Griffen is working on some new moves for U.S. Bank Stadium.
Teddy Bridgewater was impressed by his first look at Laquon Treadwell.
Around the NFL:
Zach Mettenberger didn't stay unemployed for long, the Chargers claimed him off waivers, per NFL.com.
From NFL.com, Eric Decker says that Ryan Fitzpatrick will be the Jets QB.
Mark Sanchez tore ligaments in his non-throwing hand, per Yahoo Sports. No word on how long he expects to be out, but that certainly doesn't help Denver's QB situation.
After a nice outing by Hughes, the Twins bullpen showed off their stuff. Tonkin surrendered three, and not wanting to be outdone, May also surrendered three, and the Twins fell to the Tigers, 2-7.
With that, we come to today's media selection. I didn't think I'd remember, but I did. What a treat for you!
