We’re back to a wide-open open thread again today (within the confines of the rules, of course)

Merry Wednesday, everyone!

Hopefully the one day reprieve will be beneficial. As with many things, sometimes a little break can be helpful. Will it be in this case? I seriously doubt it, but you never know, stranger things have happened.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris takes a look at Matt Miller’s seven round mock draft for the Minnesota Vikings. I hope he picked us a good punter.

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

A contract negotiation is all that stands between Sammy Watkins and the Chiefs, per CBS Sports.

ESPN has a list of key dates for the 2020 NFL off-season.

The Sporting News ranks the top 50 free agents.

We come to today’s media selection:

Here’s a few more by Billy Strings. 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 tiger meat.
