Friday Open Thread: April 20th, 2018

New, comments

Hello Friday, I’ve been waiting for you all week.

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning!

What do we have to talk about today, oh right the Vikings schedule was released last night and let me be the first to say “I don’t see a loss on the schedule.” It’s Friday and despite the over analysis I’m sure will occur today and during the weekend we still have the draft pending next Thursday.

Around the DN since our last thread:

Eric brings us the Vikings schedule with dates, game times and more, check it out.

Chris posted pick 24 of the Daily Norseman Mock Draft, Carolina you’re on the clock!

Also by Chris, ESPN proposes a Vikings’ target for each day of the 2018 NFL Draft and the Sporting News predicts a 9-7 record for the Vikings in 2018. Lol as my kids would say.

Vikings news from other sources and news of interest:

From Wobby has seven observations regarding the Vikings 2018 schedule.

The Vikings are featured in four prime time games.

HC Mike Zimmer shares his thoughts with Wobby about the 2018 schedule.

Paul Allen and Wobby break down the Vikings schedule, beat you to it Paul.

Lost in the excitement of the schedule release, yesterday was national North Dakota Day.

From the entire league schedule week by week.

We come to today’s media selection: Leftover Salmon “Rise Up, Wake and Bake”

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!
