It’s the weekend!!!

NFL: Preseason-Minnesota Vikings at Cincinnati Bengals Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning!

I hope your Friday the 13th was lucky, mine was not as I dropped a bottle of ketchup on my shoes as I was leaving the store, unfortunately the bottle was glass and broke. No one was injured expect the ketchup bottle and I did let loose some choice words that needed a spoiler tag. Life goes on, I went and purchased another bottle. I understand that our Northern reader’s weather is supposed to be sleet and snow, I will be toiling in my yard as the predicted high is 80 on Saturday.

Around the DN since our last thread:

It’s podcast time with Saxyprince and Climbing the Pocket: Episode 79 Stefon Diggs Dollar Signs.

Chris posted day 18 of The Daily Norseman Mock Draft, Seattle you’re on the clock!

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

From Vikings.com and their lunch break series, Kirk Cousins QB draft class listed as third best since 2000.

At 1500espn they have Georgia OL Isiah Wynn under the microscope, if you couldn’t tell from my usual ranting, he’s the my choice for the Vikings 1st round pick.

They also have an article wondering if the Vikings should trade down out of the 1st round.

The big story from the league at NFL.com, WR Dez Bryant was released by the Cowboys on Friday.

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

We come to today’s media selection: Trooper “Raise a Little Hell” from the series “Stranger Things.”

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!
