Happy Memorial Day, everyone! Today is much more than just an extra day of camping. Memorial Day is a day where we remember those who died in military service. Also, those who have fought for our freedom in service of our country. Thank you to all of you who have served.
Kiddo got out on the kayak for the first time on Saturday.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Lenny Wilf to fund a unique veteran event.
3M has been named the Vikings' official science partner. I wonder if the Vikes will get a discount on sticky notes.
The Vikings offensive line received praise? It's really laughable, so give it a look. If I ever lose my day job, I should be able to get a job on the NFL Network.
Chris wrote a piece for Memorial Day 2016.
The Vikings won't travel far in 2016.
Vikings news from other sources:
From Vikings.com, Alex Boone has been a teacher for the Vikings.
Around the NFL:
Trouble in paradise? From Cheesehead TV, some are speculating that it's a make or break year for McCarthy in Green Bay. Thanks to david knigge for sending me this.
Poor A-a-ron, Aaron Rodgers doesn't like that players are mic'd up during games, per NFL.com. No word on whether Rodgers received a wah-burger to go along with his french cries.
The Twins, determined not to win the race to the bottom, won 3 in a row. They beat the Mariners on Friday, again on Saturday, and once more on Sunday. I'm not sure what's going on. Mauer found his power, and many other odd things occurred.
With that, we come to today's media selection. This seems like a good media selection for Memorial Day. Again, thank you to those who have served.
