Weekend Open Thread

Good Morning!

The Daily Norseman Mock Draft Database™ should be updated today, I’ll try and post stuff from the Combine via Twitter throughout the weekend. I mentioned yesterday that I was going to put something on the smoker this weekend, decided on a pork butt so I’ll be up early Sunday morning. If you’re interested in smoking meat leave a comment below and I’ll post the youtube video that got me started on it. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and enjoy your weekend and if you have Corona make sure you have a lime handy.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Ted ponders: Mike Zimmer ‘open’ to moving Riley Reiff to LG. Somewhere, Mike Remmers shakes his head in amazement.

Also from Ted: Should I Stay Or Should I Go? Mackensie Alexander.

Matt Miller: Vikings to do “serious work” on 2020 quarterback class via Chris.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings.com ESPN Draft Analyst Mel Kiper Jr. talked with former Vikings LB Ben Leber at the scouting combine to discuss some mid-round options for the Vikings when it comes to QBs and WRs, and also preview the upcoming draft from a national perspective.

Trevon Diggs Grateful for Stefon’s Guidance from Childhood to Combine.

Winfield, Jr., Reed Following in Fathers’ Footsteps at Combine.

Judd Zulgad at SkorNorth.com: Vikings’ most important offseason decision remains a mystery.

League News:

Consistent with the weekend thread, I’ll post league news in the comments section.

We come to today’s media selection: Johnny Cash - Folsom Prison Blues

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 Welcome Aboard!
