We’re back! After a short hiatus last weekend due to unforeseen circumstances your weekend thread is up and running. I’m going to post my preferences for the Vikings 1st round picks today, even it requires a trade up. Normally, I’m against drafting for need but this year’s team has lots of positions of need. 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 you should stay home today, avoid social interaction except for here and have a great weekend.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Chris notes: You can stop blaming Kirk Cousins for the Stefon Diggs trade now.

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 wash your hands, don’t touch your waiter’s face and Welcome Aboard!
