Monday Tuesday (thanks, CRG), everyone!
I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend, I know I did. I almost finished my raised gardens, all the rock is done, I just need to put the cedar rail around the top. Yesterday was a long day.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Wludford has five guys who could surprise.
Chris noted that there’s a battle for the center position at OTAs.
The Vikings ran a lot of trick plays in 2016, per Chris.
Mike Zimmer says he’ll be back, one eye or two. I love Zimmer.
Chris shared a tribute on Memorial Day.
Wludford has an NFC North roster comparison.
Vikings news from other sources:
From Vikings.com, MJD breaks down the Vikings’ running back battle. Also, Mike Preifer says the team has multiple options at kick returner.
Over at the Pioneer Press, they say Adam Thielen looks to show last year was no fluke.

We come to today’s media selection.
Since I was knee deep in yard work yesterday and didn’t get a chance to get on a computer, here’s one for our fallen heroes, who we recognize on Memorial Day (and every day), sung by SSGT Barry Sadler.
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 blood sausage.
