It's the peak of the week, all downhill from here.

Hump Daaaayyyyyy!

Hey, the Braves won last night. Pitching looked good, and Santana got screwed out of a win on a night where he went all 9 for the Twins. Great game, and great seeing Supavike & his critter. It was a beautiful night, and a great night for baseball. Here's to a sweep tonight!

Here's a view from our seats:

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Rule of Tree, the Stanford SB Nation page, did a really great tribute to Denny Green.

Pikestabber tells the story of getting yelled at by none other than Bud Grant.

The Vikings have room to add 3 additional players (PUNTER!!!!!) before training camp.

Vikings news from elsewhere and news from around the league:

From, Spielman provided some insight on the interior of the defensive line.

In honor of Dennis Green, YouTube released the 1998 Thanksgiving game between the Vikings and Cowboys.

This sucks. I'm working on one screen, so that's all I'm putting on here. If I missed anything, put it in the comments, please.

We come to today's media selection. It was just released, so let's play it.

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 pickled pigs feet.
