Friday Open Thread: June 23, 2017

New, comments

We’ve almost survived another week, and our reward is........a weekend!

Anthony Carter

Happy Friday, everyone!

We finally made it, now we just have to survive the work day.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris reviews number 77 in Minnesota Vikings By The Numbers.

The Vikings struggled mightily in the red zone last year (for a few years, actually), and they’re looking to reverse that trend, per Chris.

Vikings news from other sources:

ESPN discussed the Vikings’ red zone struggles in the recent past.

From Vikings.com, U.S. Bank Stadium garnered an international award.

You can vote for the 2017 Minnesota Vikings Cheerleader cover model.

Around the rest of the league:

NFL.com says that Derek Carr’s deal is actually a bargain.

The Chiefs have parted ways with their GM John Dorsey, per NFL.com. The timing seems a bit odd to me, but that seems to be the new trend.

We come to our media selection.

This one is kinda my tradition when I post the Friday thread, so here’s one from The Possum.

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 hog maws
