Minnesota Vikings News and Links: April 18th and 19th, 2020

Weekend Open Thread

John Randle

Good Morning!

Only a few more days until the draft, and knowing us we’ll all be disappointed in the selections the Vikings make because “my new favorite players was still on the board.” Today’s lead picture is my favorite Viking player.....that wasn’t drafted. 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:

League News:

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

We come to today’s media selection: 311- Beautiful Disaster

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!

No more Covid 19 discussions.


If we were able to setup a Zoom meeting during the draft for the DN, would you want to participate?
