Happy Monday, everyone!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. We took advantage of the nice weather, and worked in the yard. We replaced a BUNCH of sprinkler heads, and we did a bunch of other little things we needed to do to get the yard prettied up. I also started the process of putting a coat of poly on the deck that surrounds our hot tub, it looks really good. I know I’m odd, but I find yard work & projects to be fun and relaxing, and Mrs. Fishin’ does as well, so for us, it was a perfect weekend. The forecast is finally mentioning the 80s here. It’s about time, I’m ready for summer.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

The Vikings finalized the dates and times for their preseason schedule, per Chris.

Anthony Harris signed his franchise tender with the Vikings. Now, let’s hope they can work out a long-term deal and keep him in purple and gold.

GoldKing published a fanpost where he shows a scientific prediction for the outcome of the Vikings 2020 season. Science isn’t my field of expertise, but this looks legit, you should give it a read.

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

NFL cornerbacks doofuses Baker and Dunbar were released from jail on bond over the weekend, per FoxSports (correction in the title was made by me).

Michael McCaskey passed away after a battle with cancer, per FoxSports. McCaskey led the Bears for more than 30 years after the death of his grandfather and Bears founder, George Halas.

Redskins WR Cody Latimer was arrested on five charges, according to The Sporting News. The arrest occured after several shots were fired inside an apartment.’s been a while since I’ve lived in an apartment building, but aren’t residences fairly close together in those things? You might get away with firing a few shots in the air..........if you live on a decent-sized farm.

We come to today’s media selection:

Here’s a Justin Jefferson highlight reel for your viewing enjoyment. Enjoy!

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 wash your hands, touch your face often, and go ahead and try the finger food.
