As we wait for training camp we’ll plod along with our daily thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes, if you don’t get this reference ask me in the comments. 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 which about seven of us here are following, I’ll be updating matches today and throughout the weekend, Welcome Aboard.

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

Vikings records week continues with an article by Chris, Will anyone break Adrian Peterson’s single game rushing record?

Chris brings us the news that Vikings QB Kirk Cousins was not included on David Carr’s list of NFL top QB’s, but his broker was, snicker.

Head Coach Mike Zimmer was ranked number seven among Head Coaches by the Sporting News.

The Vikings are doing a pretty good job of keeping their core players together, all hail Ryck and Brzezinski!

Vikings news from other sources:

From TE Kyle Rudolph hosts multiple events to give back to the local community.

From their lunch break series, HoF WR Randy Moss is debated as the best wide receiver ever, not sure what the debates about.

Presser Points: Spielman and Zimmer on keeping DE Danielle Hunter with the Vikings.

AT 1500espn they have an article, “which Vikings players will be affected by the recent contract extensions” and “Barr or Diggs, if the Vikings can keep only one of these players who do they sign?”

We come to today’s media selection: The Rollings Stones-Paint it Black

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!
