Merry Wednesday, everyone!

It’s the peak of another boring off-season week. Hey, at least the draft is only a little over 2 months away.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Vikings news from other sources:

We come to today’s media selection.

Here’s another great suggestion from southparkskolman, it’s the Pistol Whippin’ Party Penguins, great stuff.

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.
