Minnesota Vikings News and Links: May 20, 2020

We’ve reached the peak of the week, it’s all downhill from here

At age 90, retired Minnesota Vikings coach and noted outdoorsman Bud Grant targeted a drake mallard while hunting in Nebraska in January 2018 with longtime friend and retired Cabela’s president and CEO Dennis Highby, left.

Merry Wednesday, everyone!

Many thanks to GASkol for posting yesterday’s thread, life happened in my world, so I appreciate his picking up my slack. Sometimes, when you get in from an evening of yard work in the hot sun, you come in and take a temporary rest in your comfy leather rocker/recliner, and the next thing you know, you wake up at 7:30 am the following morning.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

From Luft Krigare, they talk O-line improvement and more in Part I of CTPN Quick Shots.

Steve Smith believes in the Vikings for 2020, per Chris. As someone who always admired Steve Smith’s style of play, I am also beginning to admire his acute analysis and his wisdom.

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

We come to today’s media selection:

From a conversation with CCHOF yesterday afternoon, a great group from yesteryear, this is Asleep at the Wheel. 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.
