Good Morning!

Well that was a mess yesterday wasn’t it? What was worse was having to listen to the local broadcast, I’ve had dry toast that was more entertaining and enlightening. While we’re waiting impatiently for the regular season we’ll continue 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. It’s hawt taek Sunday, so if you have one feel free to drop it here.

Around the DN since our last thread:

Check out your Vikings Stock Market Report with Ted.

HC Mike Zimmer says that Cedrick Lang will be going on injured reserve and he’s probably not the only one, via Chris.

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!
