Good Morning!

We’re in the doldrums of the league calendar with mini-camps now completed and we’ve the entered the “no news is good news” about our favorite football team until training camp starts. Have another cup of coffee and drop by for some fan wisdom and snark. In the meantime the World Cup is going on until July 15th. I’ll be updating that event in the comment section as time permits, and well played to Nigeria yesterday. This weekend is my wife’s birthday, we’re at an undisclosed location having fun, what are your plans this weekend?

Around the DN since our last thread:

The DailyNorseman is looking for writers, if you’re interested contact SB Nation’s talent manager for team brands Jeanna Thomas, at

From Skelly10, the Vikings hosted a LGBTQ Summit to help foster inclusion in sports.

Vikings news from other sources:

At Wobby opens his pick six mailbag and answers reader questions.

From their lunch break series, Sports Illustrated gives the Vikings a B+ for their offseason grade (should have drafted a guard for an A). Just kidding.

ESPN’s Darren Rovell keynoted the Vikings 2nd Business Summit.

Consistent with the weekend thread, I’ll post stuff from the league in the comments section Saturday and Sunday.

We come to today’s media selection: ACDC-Have a Drink on Me

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!
