It's Tuesday, and the daily thread is open for business!

Merry Tuesday everyone! Welcome to another slow day of not much NFL news in this exhilarating off-season.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Ted shared the story that Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers will be interviewed by the NFL regarding the use of performance enhancing drugs, if the NFL gets its way. I'm sure you're all shocked, as I am, that Clay Matthews is suspected of using PEDs. My sarcasm font is broken, sorry.

The Vikings announced the new PA announcer for U.S. Bank Stadium.

Vikings news from elsewhere:

As if you didn't know already, the Vikings are one of 13 teams who are vying for their first Super Bowl win, per Vikings.com.

Mark Brunell at ESPN thinks the Vikings have a chance to win the Super Bowl this year, per the Strib.

Around the NFL:

The Strib has the story of Tarvaris Jackson and his domestic incident.

Eli Manning tells NFL.com that he's looking forward to making the playoffs.

With that, we come to today's media selection. Here's a good song for this time of year and how I"m beginning to feel.

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.
