Minnesota Vikings News and Links: April 15, 2020

Any other year, this would be tax day

The Vikings beat the Atlanta Falcons in the season opener in Atlanta Sunday. — Vikings kicker Mitch Berger is congratulated as he leaves the field after recovering a fumble of his kickoff by the Falcons’ Tim Dwight in the second quarter Sunday afternoon.

Merry Wednesday, everyone!

We’re half-way to the weekend, and I’m REALLY looking forward to it. The boat is almost ready for the water, and the weather looks like it is going to cooperate, so I expect to take the fam out fishing on Saturday. I’ve been putting some long hours in on the buffer, and the paint is shining up nicely, especially considering that it’s almost as old as me. Walleye, beware, we’re comin’.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Dan Kadar at SB Nation thinks that CB Jeff Gladney would fit nicely in the Vikings’ secondary.

Mel Kiper expanded his mock draft to two rounds, and fills some areas of need for the Vikes.

Wludford takes a look at some guys the Vikings might actually draft.

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

From the AP, Kirk Cousins has well wishes for Stefon Diggs (meaning that he wished Diggs well, he didn’t wish that Diggs had a well, and he didn’t wish in a well.......not that I’m aware of, anyway).

ESPN has some insight as to how the virtual draft will work and what we should expect. I expect to eat too much.

Mike Iupati is returning to Seattle on a one-year deal, per FoxSports.

We come to today’s media selection:

Since we played Sad Cat Diary yesterday, we’ll go with Sad Dog Diary for today’s selection. 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 staying home unless you really need to go out.
