Good Morning!

Hope you had a great week with a vacation day (for some of us) on Wednesday. Training camp is one day closer, in the meantime we’ll plod along with out weekend thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crockpot and smoker recipes. Much to the consternation of some of you (I’m making a list, pour one out for PPB) the World Cup is still going on with matches today. I’ll update those in the comment section below.

Around the DN since our last thread:

The Daily Norseman is looking for writers, if you’re interested contact SB Nation’s talent manager for team brands Jeanna Thomas, at Last time I’m posting this, get out there and apply.

Eric ponders....which Vikings player needs to prove their worth the most in the 2018 season?

Rotoworld’s Josh Norris talks about how the Minnesota Vikings use analytics, I posted this podcast in the comments last weekend, give it a listen it’s a really good podcast.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Finding the fatal flaw in each of the NFC North QB’s.

Dalvin Cook Spices Up 1st ‘Iron Viking’ Contest at Annual Fundraiser.

Consistent with the weekend thread, I’ll post stuff from the league in the comments section Saturday and Sunday, also World Cup matches.

We come to today’s media selection: Pearl Jam-Better Man

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!
