Longship Log:

Chris asked how many of the Vikings' 2016 draft picks will be making the roster this year.

Adrian Peterson will be in the Top-10 of the NFL Network's Top 100 players in the NFL list.

Around the Horns:

Vikings Territory: Vikings Territory has their Question of the Week, as well as a new segment of "Camp Questions." Oh and I suppose they also have episode 278 of the Purple FTW podcast.

Vikings Journal: The Vikings have added a new section to their scouting department.

Reddit: Apparently Duron Carter is still messing around in the CFL.

Other: NFL Spin Zone has their estimate of what a good season for Laquon Treadwell would look like. Questions abound about Adrian Peterson's long-term future with the Vikings.

Swords from the Opposing Horde:

Yesterday was suspension day as suspensions were handed down (or upheld) against Johnny ManzielSheldon RichardsonDeMarcus Lawrence, and Rolando McClain.

JPP ran a one-year-too-late PSA about fireworks safety.

Goodell is one rich SOB.

Apparently the NFL has announced the winners of the classic games being put up on Youtube for every team.

Minnesota Twins update:

They lost (again), this time 6-5 to the White Sox in their house. They play again tonight at home against the Texas Rangers, game time at 7:10 CT.

Here's your Friday music of the week.

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 disco light is down and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your local dolphin brigade, & try the spicy tree bark!
