Merry Wednesday, everyone!
Another beautiful day out there, there’s really no reason to work today. It seems like a much better day for fishing, IMO.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Chris posted the Dead Tree Media draft review of Jaleel Johnson.
Chris shared the Florio report that the Bridgewater contract situation ‘could get ugly’. I saw that report & once I saw it was Florio, I didn’t bother reading any further.
The Vikings’ preseason dates and times have been finalized, per Chris.
Vikings news from other sources:
The Vikings will open the preseason on August 10 in Buffalo, per ESPN.
The Vikings media vault has some good videos, including an interview with Dalvin Cook.
Former Vikings Jack Brewer and Byron Chamberlain give back to the Haitian community, from Lindsey Young. Also, Greta Warren spoke about education, family, and giving back.
The Vikings were welcomed by Morris for a town takeover.
Around the rest of the NFL:
From Fox News Health, NFL great Nick Buoniconti has been diagnosed with dimentia, and says he wouldn’t have played football had he known the dangers.
From mystatesman.com, Khaseem Greene has been charged in connection with a New Jersey shooting, and has been waived by the Chiefs.
We come to today’s media selection.
Let’s hear one more from the great Jerry Reed.
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 head cheese.
