Wednesday Open Thread: May 3, 2017

We’re halfway through the week!

Randell McDaniel

Merry Wednesday, everyone!

Well, it’s a pretty slow news day again. Man, these weeks get long in the summer, a guy should be out fishing right now.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Everson Griffen came in at number 92 in the NFL Network’s top 100.

Vikings news from other sources:

Matt Vensel at the Strib looks at which Vikings vets are most affected by the new draft class.

From, Eric Smith shares Jimbo Fisher’s high opinion of Dalvin Cook, and has 5 things to know about Rodney Adams, and 5 things to know about Jaleel Johnson.

From Pete Bercich’s, here’s an interview with Rick Spielman.

Over at Fox9, Rick also spoke with Jim Rich about Teddy’s progress and some other topics.

Around the rest of the NFL:

From the Sporting News, Victor Cruz just wants a chance to play.

The Raiders purchased some land near the Las Vegas Strip for their new stadium.

Other sports news of note:

Buxton continues to have better at bats and is hitting the ball much better, and Santana continues to pitch like an ace. The Twins rolled the As last night, and continue to surprise with their better-than-expected play. They’re fun to watch again!

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.
