It’s Thorsday, only one more day until the weekend. Got big plans this weekend? We’re going to celebrate Father’s Day on Sunday, I was working last weekend and mrs_rob’s birthday on Saturday. News of our favorite team is getting scant, but we’ll 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 go ahead and have a video meeting without pants, it’s Thorsday.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Wludford has a roundup of NFC North offseason analysis.
Vikings news from other sources:
Lunch break: MJD ranks the Vikings Dalvin Cook among the NFL’s Top 10 running backs.
Alexander Mattison getting to know the Vikings offense, teammates in preparation for his first NFL season.
Matthew Coller at SkorNorth notes the Vikings need progress from Jaleel Johnson and Jalyn Holmes.
State of the Franchise: Playoffs or bust for Kirk Cousins, Vikings.
We come to today’s media selection: Toby Keith - How Do You Like Me Now?!
Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-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 waiter, try the outrage and Welcome Aboard!
