Merry Wednesday, everyone!

Wow, in the blink of an eye, the insane cycle of non-stop news from draft weekend has instantly switched back to sloth speed. We can hold out hope that the NFL season won’t be delayed for long, or it will be a very long wait until training camp.

Here where I live, we are going to be allowing businesses to re-open, with qualifiers that they are able to maintain certain criteria, so hopefully that will be a trend that we’ll start to see in other parts of the country as well, because that will mean that the NFL season is near. I’m ready.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris gave all of you a big thank you for the great draft weekend, and he also has links in the story where you can have a listen to the coverage.

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

Chiefs CB, Bashaud Breeland, was arrested on multiple charges yesterday, and remains in custody, per the USA Today. From the looks of it, he was initially only in trouble for having an open container and a little bit of pot, which likely would have been resolved without an arrest, but he made matters worse by resisting arrest, which is why he was arrested and is still in custody. Le Sigh.

Sports Illustrated posted their post-draft power rankings, for what it’s worth, which isn’t much.

FoxSports looks at Jeff Gladney, and how well he fits with his new head coach, Mike Zimmer.

We come to today’s media selection:

I’ll be playing this one a lot if they don’t get the off-season schedule moving.

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. Wipe the fish guts off of your hands before you touch your face, and try the finger food.

No more Covid 19 discussions.
