Minnesota Vikings News and Links: June 26, 2019

We’ve made it half-way to another glorious summer weekend

NFL: Minnesota Vikings-Minicamp Harrison Barden-USA TODAY Sports

Merry Wednesday, everyone!

Wow, I was gonna say something about a slow news cycle, but it’s more of a no news cycle. I was thinking of just making up some random stories, but I normally manage to offend someone anytime I do anything like that.........well, I normally manage to offend someone anytime I do anything, I guess. Anyway, there isn’t much out there, but we can always talk about those amazing Twins. They’re fun to watch, ain’t they? They won big again last night as they blew out the Rays, 9-4. Keep on rollin’, baby!

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Someone looked at a “what-if” scenario where they looked at what would happen if every team’s 2018 one-score differential game results were flipped, Chris shares the Vikings’ results.

A recent NFL Fandom report doesn’t think highly of Vikings fans, per Chris. The report is from Emory University, which I assume is filled with ‘people’ who know nothing about football, and are likely not learning anything useful. I’m kidding, but their results are dumb, and so are they. They smell like gravy, too, and they hate children and old people.......and dogs.

Other NFL news, other sports news, and random oddities and annoyances:

From NBC, sheep eyeball juice and maggoty cheese are among the yuckiest at Sweden’s Disgusting Food Museum. I’m guessing black olives are near the top of that list as well.

A man won a lottery jackpot of over $350,000 by using the numbers from a fortune cookie, per UPI. I hope he went back and left a massive tip.

We come to today’s media selection:

In case anyone doesn’t get the reference to old people and dogs up above.

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, and try the head cheese.
