NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Minnesota Vikings Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning!

Ah, the weekend. Time to work out in the yard, catch up with the latest on Netflix and fire up the grill or smoker. As I see new Vikings or league related things I’ll post them in the comments. Bring on the draft and let’s start OTA’s!

Around the DN since our last thread:

Courtesy of Chris, Eric and Ted you have your very own Vikings free agency tracker on the front page.

It was the best of times, it was worst of times Ted brings us the best move of free agency and the worst move of free agency. Yes, I just worked Charles Dickens into the mythical words up here.

What is or isn’t a catch in the NFL? J-Dog bring us the news that the league is looking to simply the rule.

Joe Berger has decided to retire after playing 13 years writes Eric, also DT Tom Johnson signed a one year deal with the Seahawks and G Jeremiah Sirles signed a one year deal with the Panthers.

Kyle Shanahan really wanted Kirk Cousins writes Chris.

Two podcasts round out the what’s new on the front page, Climbing the Pocket: Episode 74 High Fidelity from Saxyprince and Norse Code Episode 228: Punch Out Angelo Mosca.

Vikings news from other sources:

From the Vikings homepage, they have the best of Joe Berger’s career in pictures.

Vikings fans celebrate national puppy day.

Minnesota native Tom Compton is excited to play for the Vikings.

At NFL.com writer Charles David posted his mock draft 2.0, I like his selection for the Vikings. They also have a list of the top 101 free agents with who has signed and who hasn’t.

Our friend Tor66 notified me the Vikings play this Sunday, the reigning AFL champion AFC Vienna Vikings, have their first game for the season vs. Traun Steelsharks, check out his fanpost for a livestream link.

We come to today’s media selection: Nirvana, the Youtube Mix.

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!
