Merry Wednesday, everyone!

Holy cow, I forgot to update this morning, my apologies. I hope none of you were injured.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

GreatOdinsRaven posted Skoldiers - 047 - Setting up camp.

Eric was on with Chase Thomas and helped preview the North.

Arif posted Norse Code Podcast Episode 279: A Return to Camp.

Other Vikings and NFL news, other sports news, and/or random oddities and annoyances:

From NFL.com, the Saints and Michael Thomas agreed on an insane 5-year, $100 million contract extension. I’m glad the Vikings got Thielen and Diggs under contract, this deal is going to affect WR deals going forward, I almost feel sorry for the Falcons.

From mlb.com, Buxton went deep, getting the Twins very close to a MLB record, and the Twins squeaked by the Marlins, 2-1.

We come to today’s media selection:

One of the greatest bands ever.

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 tip the cows, and don’t hassle the sheep (quick glance at MT_Viking).
