NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning!

Per Gone Fishin baseball season starts today, those of you who’ve been around the DN for a while know I follow soccer not baseball, but since most of you do I’ll give it mention up here in the mythical words no one reads. Also, I have exactly one good baseball gif that I’ll post today, then I’m done with baseball.

Around the DN since our last thread:

Courtesy of Chris, Ted and Eric you have your very own Vikings free agency tracker on the front page, I’m leaving this here until the end of free agency.

Chris posted Day 3 of the Daily Norseman mock draft.

The NFL has eliminated PAT’s after a team wins on the final play of the game, or the Diggs Rule.

Also per Chris fan favorite Marcus Sherels has re-signed with the Vikings for a reported one year deal.

Vikings news from other sources:

From the Vikings homepage, Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks project the Vikings first three draft picks.

HC Mike Zimmer says the offense will do what new Vikings QB Kirk Cousins does best, I’m hoping score lots of touchdowns.

Latavius Murray visited US troops in Germany and Italy as part of the NFL USO tour.

At the league talks in Orlando the NFL has expanded the helmet to helmet hit rule and begun talks on a targeting rule.

From 1500espn, they have Mel Kiper’s latest mock draft pick for the Vikings, “under the microscope” Florida DT Taven Bryan and Ohio State C/G Billy Price.

We come to today’s media selection: with the onset of baseball season, Bruce Springsteen....”Glory Days.”

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!
