Pull up a stool & join the convo, your daily thread is now open!

Merry Tuesday, everyone! We have another exciting day of no NFL news for you to enjoy.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Mike Zimmer had some nice things to say about......Cordarrelle Patterson?

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings.com, Craig Peters looks at 7 topics as Vikings minicamp approaches.

Sports Illustrated says that U.S. Bank gives fans an up-close experience, by Lindsey Young.

Vikings.com has a time lapse video of the turf install at U.S. Bank Stadium.

From Vikings Update, the Minnesota Vikings system is totally different for Andre Smith.

ESPN says that the Vikings are relying on massive O-line competition among the 16 linemen they have on the roster.

Around the NFL:

Fletcher Cox agreed to a six-year, $103 million extension with the Eagles, per NFL.com.

NFL.com looks at the NFL's most overrated and underrated story lines.

Twins update:

Whoa! Two in a row! Behind a decent outing by Nolasco and contributions throughout the lineup, with 3 home runs including a 3-run blast by Plouffe, the Twins beat the California Los Angeles Angels who play in Anaheim California Los Angeles, 9-4. I think I smell a wild card berth.

With that, we come to today's media selection. Here's a cool short video of the 2009 Vikings week 10 game against the Lions in the Metrodome. Enjoy!

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 liver & onions.
