Weekend Open Thread, March 31st and April 1st 2018

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

Good Morning! I hope your weekend is going great, as I mentioned yesterday in the mythical words up here I’m having a weekend vacation with the Mrs. Unfortunately the weather has turned cold and rainy (cold for us) so the kayaking and zip line course we were going to do are on hold for now, darn it. As I see new stuff from the Vikings or around the league I’ll post it in the comments.

Around the DN since our last thread:
Courtesy of Chris you have your very own Vikings free agency tracker on the front page, I’m leaving this here until the end of free agency.

Also from Chris the news that the Vikings have signed Wright, Kendall Wright a free agent WR from the Bears. Welcome Aboard!

The Daily Norseman mock draft continues, Denver Broncos you’re on the clock.

Wludford gives us a preview of potential offensive lineman the Vikings could consider with the upcoming draft.

Saxyprince drops the latest Climbing the Pocket: Episode 74 One of us for OBJ?

Vikings news from other sources:
From the Vikings homepage they have a feature from GMFB in which Pete Schrager says “he’s all in for the Vikings playing in the Super Bowl.
Also from the Vikings homepage five things to know about new Vikings WR Kendall Wright.

New Lions HC Matt Patricia says the NFC North is the league’s toughest division.

There’s more there, I’ll post it in comments during the weekend.

News from across the league:
In a surprise move the Raiders cut punter Marquette King yesterday, only myself and MarkSP18 will be excited about this I’m sure.

I’m sure there will be more league news during the weekend, when I see it I’ll post in the comments.

Music selection: More baseball today with Abbott and Costello “Who’s On First.”

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!
