Thursday Open Thread: August 11, 2016

One. More. Day. You can do it.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Thursday, everyone! Hey, I'm a bit busy so this is going to be fairly quick (TWIS).

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Connor Howe at Cincy Jungle asked Eric a few questions about the Vikings.

Eric looked at the defense in his latest Training Camp evaluation.

Arif posted Norse Code Podcast Episdode 142: The Rule of Seven.

The DN was on SB Nation Radio again.

Ten players missed the first practice with the Bengals.

Pac-Man Jones and Adam Thielen got into a little scuffle yesterday.

Ted has some takeaways from the Vikings-Bengals joint practice.

Ted was on the Jimmy B and TC show in DesMoines.

Vikings news from elsewhere:

It's going to have to be a short one this morning. Here's a link to the news page, here's a link to the Yahoo Sports page, and here's a link to the ESPN nfl page. Work's a bit busy, so I'll add more later if I get time.

We come to today's media selection. Another one from oofda22.

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 liver.

Here's the Twitter feed, apologies for not having one in yesterday's thread:
