Good Morning!

It’s Weekend Eve, hope your plans include some fun this weekend, even if you’re working like I am. We’re knee deep in mock draft season, I might even try one this weekend if I’m able to get the software to function while I’m at work. Time to carry on with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Fire up the mock drafts and drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and try a Barrel Aged Imperial Milk Stout.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Vikings add two more to coaching staff via Chris.

Also from Chris, last year’s UDFA Hercules Mata’afa appears to be medically cleared.

Chris Jericho not a Kirk Cousins fan, still remains awesome.

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 & tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, try the Tears of Our Rivals™ and as always, Welcome Aboard!
