Welcome to your Thorsday open thread!

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Merry Thirsty Thorsday, everyone! Once again, the NFL news is sparse, but we'll share what we can find.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Arif posted Norse Code #136: DDDetroit (with Justin Rogers).

Chris posted an update on the more than words campaign, it appears to be slowing. If you haven't donated, and are able, this is a cause worth looking at.

Anothony Barr and Harrison Smith made the PFF top 101 list. They aren't high enough, in my opinion, but no one asked my opinion.

Laquon Treadwell got a birthday surprise from his teammates.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings.com:

Here are some highlights from day two of minicamp.

GM Rick Spielman talked with PA yesterday. Mike Zimmer joined him as well.

Chad Greenway said 'I tend to listen' to Zimmer's advice.

John Sullivan is enjoying the atmosphere of the minicamp practices.

Adrian Peterson addressed the media yesterday as well.

Around the NFL:

NFL.com has 11 takeaways from Wednesday's minicamps.

Muhammad Wilderson is not happy with his contract negotiations in New York, per NFL.com.

We discussed this yesterday, but Eugene Monroe has been released by the Ravens, per NFL.com.

Twins update:

The California Los Angeles Angels who play in Anaheim Calaifronia Los Angeles Angels trounced the Twins, 2-10.

With that, we come to today's media selection. Here's an oldie (sorta'), it's the 1988 week 4 game against the Eagles.

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.
