Hump Daaaayyyyyy!

It's the peak of the week, all downhill from here to another lovely summer weekend. Man, I love the summertime.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Week one of the Epic DN Fan Photo Contest is up and ready for your photos. You're allowed one photo per week, go here for the rules and list of potential prizes.

The Vikings are high in ESPN future power rankings, per Chris.

Vikings news from other sources: looks at quarterbacks in their training camp preview.

The Vikings and U.S. Bank Stadium showcase a smorgasboard, per

Here are new 360 degree views inside U.S. Bank Stadium.

Not sure if by accident or not, but davidknigge caught this. Desmond Bryant, Cleveland's sack leader last year, is out for the season with a pec injury. Oddly enough, their strength and conditioning coach is none other than Evan Marcus, who was our strength and conditioning coach from 2014 until he was fired in January. Our team had at least five different players with torn pec injuries in his two years here. Coincidence?

Around the rest of the NFL:

At, Chris Harris says Von Miller will only play if he gets a new deal.

Chad Johnson asked Hue Jackson for a job with the Browns, per

With that, we come to today's media selection. Thanks to Admiral BigGun for the suggestion (and it's a fine pairing with the DN photo contest).

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
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door

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 tiger meat.
