Merry Tuesday, everyone!

Well, Monday is gone, I hope you made the best of it while it was here.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Here’s a piece from our sister site where they cover the Longhorns (or maybe since it’s college, it’d be our cousin site? Possibly our niece site, I’m not sure about such things) on former Longhorn Holton Hill, and the potential the Vikings think he has.

Our own Adam Thielen checked in at #36 in the NFL Network Top 100. Not bad for a guy for whom making the practice squad was miraculous.

Three former Vikings are on the College Football Hall of Fame ballot, per Chris.

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

From ESPN, Cousins says his new team has helped make the transition easy.

Over at, hear Kyle Rudolph chat for a bit after practice, see Thielen’s introduction on the NFL Top 100 list, check out the highlights from yesterday’s OTAs, and there’s lots more to look through in the media vault.

CBS Sports has their list of potential post-June 1 trade candidates, and you’ll recognize a name on their list. I still hope Teddy winds up back with the Vikes somehow.

Jerry Rice shares memories of Dwight Clark, the one who caught “the pass” from Joe Montana. Clark passed away yesterday after a long battle with ALS.

We come to today’s media selection.

Hey, need a pick me up? Here’s one of the classics with one of their classic tunes, enjoy!

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 anything you read is 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 chitlins.
