Merry Wednesday, everyone!
Well, we’re almost there, it’s the day before the draft. Hey, today’s also my Thursday since I’m taking Friday off for my annual draft party. As I say every year, if any of you are in Bismarck and want to join us, I just ask that you shoot me an email & let me know (or let me know in the comments) so we have an idea of how many to prepare for. It’s a fun time every year, just a bunch of Vikings fans having a beer or two and eating WAY too much food. The smoker will be going from Thursday to Saturday, pretty much non-stop.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Chris reset the linebacker position on the Vikings’ depth chart, he also looked at potential linebacker targets for the team.
Ted brought us Rickspeak, pre-draft edition! These are my favorite.
Vikings news from other sources:
Xavier Rhodes also chatted with the media & talked about a new contract & about facing AD in week one.
Lindsey Young looked at how the leadership of Robison & Griffen are setting the pace in the offseason.
Around the rest of the NFL:
We come to today’s media selection.
Here’s some rock from my high school days, I loved this song. Heck, I still do.
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
-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 tiger meat.
