Merry merry Friday, everyone!

Well, we survived another work week, and we get rewarded with a weekend. This may be a bit brief, it’s one of those weeks.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Arif posted Norse Code Podcast 182: Optimal Johnson.

The DN is looking to hire a couple of front page writers.

Wludford looks at the Vikings’ right tackle position battle.

Vikings news from other sources:

From WCCO, lots of folks turned out for Bud Grant’s garage sale.

Pat Shurmur sat down and talked with Wobby about the offseason additions, the offseason program, and more, from Vikings. com.

Around the rest of the NFL:

LeGarrette Blount says Carson Wentz has the potential to be really special, per Blount has played with 2 future HOF QBs in his career, now he’s working with his third.

We come to 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.
