Thorsday Open Thread: July 27, 2017

Come discuss the latest hype and/or gloom emanating from training camp

Happy Thirsty Thorsday, everyone!

Hey, we're well into training camp, even the vets are on the field. I have high hopes for our beloved Vikings this year, it just feels like we have so many reasons to be optimistic.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris is moving on down the line as he covers number 43 in Minnesota Vikings by the Numbers, and also number 42.

Single game tickets to see the NFL's greatest team go on sale today, per Chris.

CCNorseman has full coverage of Tuesday afernoon's session at Vikings training camp.

Chris shared the report that the Vikings are finalizing an extension with Everson Griffen, essentially keeping him here to finish his career.

The Vikings signed CB Sam Brown, and waived Arturo Uzdavinis.

Eric was on KLGR's The Scoop, he was also on The BrakeDown on Bison 1600, and SD Sports Buzz with Nate Brown.

Saxyprince talks to Paul Allen on his podcast, Climbing the Pocket.

Teddy Bridgewater was officially placed on teh PUP list, per Chris.

Vikings news from other sources:

Some video from  Vikings.com, Wobby opened the pick 6 mailbagSpielman addresed the media, and lots more in the media vault.

News from around the rest of the league:

From the New York Times (gag), a neuropahtologist examined 111 brains of NFL players, and 110 were found to have C.T.E. I'm not a doctor, but that seems bad.

From NFL.com, the Bills traded Cardale Jones to the Chargers for a conditional pick.

We come to our media selection.

Let's let Kenny Wayne Shepherd sing about this new Vox format.

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 head cheese.
