Hump Daaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy!

Merry Wednesday, everyone!

Another lovely spring-ish day here in the great white north, these are the days I miss working outside. Anyone catching any fish yet? Very hit & miss here, someone told me it’s because the water is moving faster, so the fish are more active so harder to find. I dunno, I didn’t argue, because I have no clue. I just know that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every second I’ve been out there.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Saxyprince posted Climbing the Podcast: Episode 91 [Building a Dyanasty].

Chris and Jake Kocorowski from Bucky’s Fifth Quarter (that’s $1.25, I’m good at math) talk about how Garret Dooley fits with the Vikings.

Chris takes a look at which compensatory picks the Vikings could receive in 2019.

CBS Sports picked one Viking draftee as an immediate contributor.

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

WCCO says that the Vikes are looking for interior O-line contributions from Gossett and Conklin.

At, Griffen was listed as one of’s top 5 pass rushers, hear from rookie WR Jake Wieneke, and there are more videos for you to sift through in the media vault.

From the Sporting News, Saints RB Mark Ingram was suspended for a PED violation.

We come to today’s media selection.

Ever have one of these days? Me too. Caution: NSFW LANGUAGE (depends where you work, but there is a mild cuss word used)

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.
