Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Wow, this is going to be a long off-season, isn’t it? I’m still not happy about Saturday, so I’ll probably wait until next week to have something talking about the direction the team needs to take. I don’t have the mental energy, or the desire, to think about it right now. I’m ready to go ice fishing.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

I shared a piece of my life with everyone.

Mark has v1.0 of his Vikings off-season plan.

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

Mike Vrabel now says he was joking about his vow to cut off exchange for a Super Bowl win, per the Huffington Post. I’m guessing nobody planned to hold him to that. Well, maybe his wife would, I don’t know. She offered to help with the process shortly after he made the vow. It’s all in the story. I don’t know how I missed this story when it happened.

We come to today’s media selection:

I believe this podcast is the one where Vrabel makes his promise mentioned above. I’m not sure, I don’t listen to podcasts. Enjoy!

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
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. I’d stay away from the waiter again today, he’s still in a bad mood.
