Happy Wednesday, everyone!

I’m gonna be scarce again, so please shoot me an email if there’s anything that needs to be addressed.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

The Vikings defensive coordinator, George Edwards, is to coach the East-West Shrine Game, per Chris. Hey, it never hurts to have an extra guy scouting (although that didn’t work out for us with Ponder after Chilly coached him in the Senior Bowl)

Vikings news from other sources:

From The Viking Age, Danielle Hunter was on PFF’s list of the top 25 under the age of 25.


Eric Smith does a season rewind, and looks at Bradford playing strong after coming over in a trade.

Around the rest of the league:

From ESPN, it looks like the Packers’ wide receiver woes may have gotten worse, as Geronimo Allison was charged with marijuana possession, and he has a court date soon.

There are sources indicating that Bill Musgrave will be out as the Raiders’ offensive coordinator, per ESPN.

We come to today’s media selection.

On this day in 1964, the album with the same name as this song became the first country album to top the U.S. pop charts.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-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 get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-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.
