Good Morning!

Words up here that nobody reads and links will be limited this morning so I can get this published, but don’t you love getting up early in the morning before the sun rises and running? I do because by the time I’m finished the birds are waking up and singing, there isn’t much people noise and I’ve accomplished something before 0700. Training camp is right around the corner so stop by for some beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Have another cup of coffee and enjoy some fan wisdom and snark.

Around the DN since our last thread:

The Vikings will open a new museum on July 25th at the TCO Performance Center via Skelly10.

Chris asks “If you had to stick with one player jersey past or present who would it be?” HoF DT John Randle!

From Chris the PFF pass rush projections seem low for the Vikings defense.

Vikings over/under: this edition Adam Thielen from Chris.

Ted bring us the news that HC Mike Zimmer indicates Mike Remmer will probably play guard this year.

Another list, this time from ESPN. Stefon Diggs and Pat Elflein make the under 25 starting lineup also from Chris.

Vikings news from other sources:

From HC Mike Zimmer sat down with Wobby and Paul Allen to talk about the offensive line, Treadwell’s development and more.

Wobby opened his pick 6 mailbag to answer reader questions about the biggest position battles at camp, check it out.

We come to today’s media selection: John Randle, A Football Life

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!
