Good Morning!

Links and words up here in the “mythical words no one reads” will be brief today, I left my glasses at work or somewhere else and can’t really see very well right now. I’d prefer my lack of vision would be blamed on the Cigar City Brewing company, alas it’s not true. I need to find my damn glasses, spelling/gramatical errors are my own.

Around the DN since our last thread:

Wludford continues breaking down the most recent additions to the Vikings roster Korey Robertson and he brings us the report that new Vikings CB Holton Hill failed a drug test at the combine.

Vikings news from other sources and league news:

Wobby opens his pick-6 mailbag for reader questions, our own commenter Nanya had a question featured in Wobby’s mailbag.

Five things to know about new Vikings LB Devante Downs.

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

We come to today’s media selection: Nirvana “About a Girl”

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!
