Good Morning!

While we’re waiting patiently for training camp to start we have 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. The World Cup is still going on and followed by about forty of us, so I’ll update that event in the comment section as appropriate today and throughout the weekend. I know a lot of you will be sad as the World Cup completes on Sunday, but training camp starts soon!

Around the DN since our last thread:

From Chris, the NFL Network will air the Vikings first two preseason games live.

Ted brings us a Vikings training camp preview and a 53 man roster prediction.

Chris ponders “Could the Vikings secondary be the next “Legion of Boom?”

Vikings news from other sources:

From The American Cancer Society and Vikings award a $100,000 grant to help reduce breast cancer disparities.

From their lunch break series: RB Dalvin Cook is tabbed as the NFC North’s rising star.

Limited Vikings single-game tickets for 2018 season to go on Sale Thursday, July 19th.

We come to today’s media selection: Wired For Sound, Offseason 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!
