As we wait for training camp we’ll plod along with our weekend thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes, since no one asked me on Friday, 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 eight of us here are following, I’ll be updating matches today as the World Cup has entered the knockout round, Welcome Aboard.

Around the DN since our last thread:

Not one but two podcasts for your listening pleasure, first up is Norse code Podcast Episode 234: the Bangladeshi Beefcake and Climbing the Pocket: Episode 99 Just be the Hunter with the Bag.

The DailyNorseman is looking for writers, if you’re interested contact SB Nation’s talent manager for team brands Jeanna Thomas, at jeanna.thomas@sbnation.com

Kirk Cousins old coach throws some shade at the new Vikings quarterback, from Skelly10.

Former Vikings WR and kick returner Percy Harvin opened up with Sports Illustrated about his lifelong battle with anxiety per Chris. Having met Percy on several occasions, good luck to him...he’s always been a nice guy when I’ve interacted with him.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings.com Danielle Hunter’s mindset is to go for the QB and destroy him.

From their lunch break series, EPSN and PFF rate the Vikings roster among the very best.

Vikings players vacation in twelve instagram posts.

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: Every Percy Harvin TD with the Vikings

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!
