Enjoy the long weekend?

NFL: Super Bowl LII Experience Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Merry Monday Tuesday, everyone!

Thanks to Rob for the save yesterday, I totally forgot about posting the thread. I was watching Lion King with kiddo when Rob reminded me & had already posted it. Senility has its drawbacks.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris asks “Which Vikings player would you want as your neighbor?”. I’d go with either Teddy Bridgewater, Brian Robison, or Stefon Diggs.

Chris has a brief history of the Vikings and the franchise tag.

Could Keenum be a candidate for the transition tag?” Chis asks.

It appears that there are legal issues preventing Shariff Floyd from deparating.

John DeFilippo had some good things to say about Kirk Cousins.

Teddy Bridgewater says that 2017 was his favorite season. Can’t help but like the kid, I hope he comes back this year & lights it up.

Vikings news from other sources and news from around the NFL:

At, David Carr thinks the Vikings are the best fit for Kirk Cousins, there are a couple other opinions on the QB situation and lots of highlights in the media vault. has their top 10 QBs worth pursuing in free agency and the draft.

We come to today’s media selection.

Sorry ‘bout forgetting the thread yesterday, here’s one from Johnny Cash.

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

-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)

-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.
