Thursday Open Thread: June 7th, 2018

It’s Thorsday!

NFL: Detroit Lions at Minnesota Vikings Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning!

It’s weekend eve and we’re continuing with our daily thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Have another cup of coffee and drop by for some fan wisdom and snark. OTA’s have started, so we have football action, sort of.

Around the DN since our last thread:

Wludford ponders whether Treadwell can make the leap this year.

In the “here we go again” category, Chris bring us the news that Vikings rookie Hercules Mata’afa tore his ACL during OTA’s and is done for the season.

Vikings news from other sources:

From lunch break series, the NFC North lands at number 2 in the divisional rankings.

Presser points: the Vikings give HC Mike Zimmer a good practice for his birthday.

Dalvin Cook on his rehab and potential bigger work load.

Highlights from OTA number 9.

From the ESPN NFC North blog, how rookie Brian O’Neill transformed from a tight end to a tackle. (shoutout to Skolifer for this find).

We come to today’s media selection: Led Zeppelin-Immigrant Song

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!
