It’s induction day for HoF WR Randy Moss!

NFL: NFL Honors-Red Carpet Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning!

Hope you’re having a great weekend with fishing, camping or doing absolutely nothing. While we’re waiting patiently for the Vikings preseason to start we’ll carry on with our weekend thread full beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Have another cup of coffee and drop by for some fan wisdom and snark. The season starts soon with new and lofty expectations so let’s get to it. I have a cool story about Packers G Jerry Kramer I’ll put in the comments section this weekend. Just a reminder, if you’re at training camp give us your impressions either in the thread or via fanpost.

Around the DN since our last thread:

From the Pride of Detroit they project the Lions training camp depth for 2018.

Finally at the Acme Packing Company they have an Open Thread for the Hall of Fame Enshrinement.

Consistent with the weekend thread I’ll post league news in the comments.

Edit: I messed up the poll, it’s closed. Look in the comments for the poll question.

We come to today’s media selection: Randy Moss-Ultimate Career Highlights

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
