It’s Thirsty Thorsday!

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Minnesota Vikings Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Thorsday, DN faithful!

Another boring off-season day. Baseball hasn’t started yet, but luckily we have the Wild to cheer for! Some of us do, anyway. Those of us that like fun.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Someone thinks Le’Veon Bell could wind up in Minnesota, per Chris.

Chris talks about Mayock’s top fives and the Vikings.

Ted reminisces about missed opportunities.

Vikings news from other sources:

ESPN thinks the Vikings should look at Whitworth or Jason Peters this off-season.

ESPN looks at where AD could land if he leaves Minnesota. One writer even suggests he may wind up in Green Bay.

Matt Vensel at the Strib says the Vikings aren’t expected to use the franchise tag this year.


Tight ends coach Clancy Barone talked with Wobby about Rudolph, among other topics.

330 prospects were invited to this year’s NFL combine.

Around the rest of the NFL:

From, it looks like a couple of other tackles are going to hit the free agency market.

We come to today’s media selection.

Another stellar suggestion from southparkskolman, this is leftover salmon.

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 chitlins.
