Good Morning this weekend!
We’re going to continue these weekend threads at least during the offseason, once the season begins we’ll see. I hope everyone is having a great weekend wherever you are, I’m rolling into work early to get caught up, mowing the lawn, then I think I’ll fire up the grill for some barbecue chicken thighs. We can talk football, Olympics, the upcoming combine, the draft, Polar plunges or whatever as long as it falls within the rules.

Around the DN since our last daily thread:
From Chris: The Daily Norseman got a mention on the Dan Patrick show, which of the current Vikings are potential cap casualties, and Super Bowl LII was the first zero waste Super Bowl.

Vikings news from Vikings.com:
Wobby has storylines to watch at the Combine and opens his pick 6 mailbag.
Our favorite team was awarded two 6th round compensatory picks by the NFL.
The indoor practice facility in Eagan is now completed.
FA Jerrick McKinnon talked to NFL access about his future.

Other NFL news:
The big news was CB Marcus Peters was traded from the Chiefs to the Rams for undisclosed draft picks, as of yet compensation has not been released, when it is I’ll update this in the comments section.

Media selection: Prince, “Let’s Go Crazy”

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 and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, try the venison chili and as always, Welcome Aboard and Skol Vikings!
