Good Morning!

I hope your weekend is going great whether you’re working, fishing or doing absolutely nothing. I have a scintillating weekend planned including repairing more fence, planting a tree in the front yard to replace the one that fell during the last hurricane and steam cleaning carpets. Mrs._rob and I are planning to catch the newest Avengers movie “Infinity War” and we might try to slip away for dinner for two. What are your plans this weekend?

Around the DN since our last thread:

Wludford projects the Vikings 2018 53 man roster.

Chris bring us the news the Vikings will be turning off the lights at their new practice facility due to complaints by the neighbors, hey I get it, I live by a soccer field.

Also from Chris new Vikings OL Brian O’Neill has signed his rookie contract and four other members of the 2018 draft class have signed their initial contract.

Vikings news from other sources and news around the league:

HC Mike Zimmer talked to the media and offered his early impressions of rookie camp.

The Vikings invited 31 rookies to mini-camp on a tryout basis, good luck to all of them as they pursue their dream.

From their lunch break series, the Kendricks brothers could be the NFL’s most talked about siblings.

I’ll post stuff from the league in the comments section Saturday and Sunday.

We come to today’s media selection: The Outlaws “Green Grass and High Tides”

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!
