Merry thirsty Thorsday, everyone!

Another day of Vikings minicamp to review. You’d better enjoy it, once this is over, it’s a long wait until training camp. Speaking of which, is anyone planning to make it to training camp this year? It’s likely the last year it’ll be in Mankato, so if you haven’t been, you may want to make the trip. Supavike was gracious enough to show me around for my first visit last year and it was an absolute blast (except for when I dropped that Walsh field goal. In my defense, no one really expected him to put one through the uprights). I don’t believe the dates have been announced yet (please correct me if I’m wrong), but it’ll cover the end of July & beginning of August, most likely.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Randy Moss and Ahmad Rashad are to be inducted into the Vikings Ring of Honor, per Eric.

Eric was fortunate enough to sit down with Jared Allen, who talked about life after football, & a Father’s Day surprise.

Chris takes a gander at #85 in the latest installment of Minnesota Vikings By The Numbers.

Vikings news from around the web:

From the Pioneer Press, Marshall Koehn is battling Kai Forbath for the Vikings’ kicker position.

From Vikings.com, they have highlights from day 2 of minicamp, Randy Moss had an emotional press conference yesterday, watch Mark Wilf tell Randy Moss that he’s being inducted into the Ring of Honor, Moss broke down the team after practice, Moss also chatted with Wobby for a bit, and Ahmad Rashad also spoke with Wobby, Holy cow, there are a ton of videos, here’s a link to the media vault, check it out.

News from the rest of the NFL:

From NFL.com, Kendall Wright blames his poor season last year on.......the Titans, the team he was playing for last year. That should go over well.

From ESPN, Richard Sherman spoke with reporters, and addressed some of the more controversial issues surrounding him and the team this off-season.

We come to today’s media selection.

I’ll let The Four Tops answer today’s poll question for me.

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
-Keep vulgar language to a minimum, using spoiler tags if you must
-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 chitlins.
