I will post a separate article later today for tonight’s Open Thread Draft Day Zoom Meeting. I have done one Zoom meeting (last night with GA Skol) so hopefully there won’t be any technical issues. 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 it’s weekend eve, stay home unless you’re working from home.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
2020 NFL Draft Results: Minnesota Vikings select Jeff Gladney.
2020 NFL Draft Results: Minnesota Vikings select Justin Jefferson.
Vikings news from other sources:
2020 NFL Draft: Roger Goodell relieved after Day 1 goes well.
Bucky Brooks’ pick-by-pick analysis for Round 1.
We come to today’s media selection: Foo Fighters - Times Like These
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!
