Minnesota Vikings News and Links: May 2nd, 2019

Thorsday Open Thread

John Randle

Good Morning!

It’s the post draft season which means not a lot of news for our favorite team. I’m sure the debates will continue to rage on whether the Vikings should have picked player A over player B, but whatever. Reminder, please make sure tweets etc. don’t contain spoilers to recent movies. I managed to include a John Randle interview on Good Morning Football in the links below, meanwhile let’s carry on with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and have another cup of coffee.

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 annoy your waiter, try the Bud Light and as always, Welcome Aboard!
