Wednesday Open Thread: February 19, 2020

New, comments

Half-way to another weekend!

Dallas vs Vikings at Metrodome — Dallas quarterback Troy Aikman grimaces as he gets hit by Viking defensive tackle John Randle, loosing the ball, during a Monday night game at the Metrodome.

Merry Wednesday, everyone!

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Colin Cowherd suggests that the Vikings want to move on from Stefon Diggs, per Chris. Cowherd bases this opinion on social media tweets made by Diggs. Cowherd also, in my opinion, is swimming in the deep end of a certain pool once mentioned by a very wise DN writer.

You know what else?

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

From MSN, Taysom Hill has done an about-face on his previous comments in the day since Drew Brees announced that he won’t be retiring.

TE Greg Olsen has agreed to terms on a deal with the Seattle Seahawks, per ESPN. A source told Adam Schefter that it is a one-year deal for $7 million with $5.5 million guaranteed.

From UPI, an Australian man rescued a gecko from drowning in beer, then performed CPR to revive him.

We come to today’s media selection:

As requested by Derby Skol, 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. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, and try the liver and onions.
