Hump Daaayyyyyyyy!

John Randle Vikings

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

We’ve made it to the middle of the week, just a couple more days to go to the weekend.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris shared the Dead Tree Media review for Danny Isidora.

Kevin Warren established “No Doors Closed” scholarships for students looking to become the first members of their family to attend college.

Chris shared the story that Xavier Rhodes checked in at #66 in the NFL Network Top 100.

Laquon Treadwell looks to leave 2016 behind, per Chris.

Vikings news from other sources:

Here’s a story from CBS Sports that illustrates just how idiotic some fans can be, and a story that everyone should read. Samantha Ponder talked about their time in MN and how ugly some fans were.

From Vikings.com:

ESPN is high on the Vikings off-season, per Eric Smith.

Here’s a highlight reel of Xavier Rhodes’ best plays from 2016.

Around the rest of the NFL:

From The Sporting News, the NFL is ‘monitoring’ whether they’ll suspend Adam Jones after he pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge yesterday. The charges stemmed from an incident at a Cincinnatti hotel in January.

From NFL.com, Derek Carr is frustrated with the pace of his contract talks with the Raiders.

The Redskins have signed Bob Marley’s grandson. Marley is 5’8” 200 and played linebacker at Tulane, no decision on which position he’ll play in the NFL. Ya’ man.

We come to today’s media selection.

Well, that last story gave me inspiration for today’s media selection.

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.
