Merry Tuesday, y’all!

I hope you all, enjoyed your Monday. How can you not enjoy a Monday though, right?

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris shared the updated NFL Network Top 100 List, where Stefon Diggs checked in at number 65.

Brian Robison has announced that he will be returning for the 2018 season.

Bud Grant’s annual garage sale is going to happen one more time (at least one more time), per Chris.

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

From, see the clip of Stefon Diggs coming in at #65 on the NFLN’s Top 100 players list, watch Steve Wyche tell you why he thinks Sheldon Richardson could have a huge impact, and there are more vids to sort through in the media vault.

From the Sporting News, David Tepper has finalized a deal to purchase the Carolina Panthers. Tepper is currently a minority owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

De’Angelo Hall says he’s ‘95% sure he’s done playing’, per I guess you could also say he’s 5% sure that he’s returning for another season. I think that’s how I would have written it.

The Supreme Court struck down the federal ban on sports gambling, opening the door for states to legalize the practice, per Fox News. You know, because nobody has been betting on sports while the law was in effect.

CBS Sports looks at how yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling regarding sports gambling could affect us.

We come to today’s media selection.

Here’s one I don’t think I’ve ever played up here, it’s Mr. Bean. I think he’s funny, but I’m told I have an odd sense of humor, which will come as a shock to all of you, I’m sure. Enjoy!

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 & tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, & try the tiger meat.
