A very merry Monday, everyone!

Hey, we got some good tailgating news over the weekend! There’ll be more on that below, but now I have another reason to make it to the first training camp at the new facility (like there weren’t enough reasons already). That news brightened my mood a few more notches, and Mondays are awesome enough to begin with.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

As I mentioned above, it appears there will be tailgating in Eagen at the new facility, with alcohol (but that’s a given, tailgating without alcohol is just..........not really tailgating).

Chris has a mock draft database where you can keep up with all the mock drafts, if that’s your thing.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will NOT be in the hunt for a new QB, as they (somewhat surprisingly) signed Blake Bortles to an extension.

Kyle Rudolph had a surprise for a female football star from Brainerd. had some good things to say about the Vikings offensive line.

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

Hey, here’s a funny classic featuring the late, great Chris Farley. Enjoy!

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.
