Happy hump day, y’all!

Man, this week is moving slowly, isn’t it? It’s supposed to be sunny & somewhat warm here today, with very little wind. A guy should really be out fishing. I have plenty of vacation time, I just finished a big project yesterday, and I also happen to have a boat sitting out in the driveway...........

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Wludford continues his analysis of the Vikings 2020 draft class, as he breaks down Cameron Dantzler.

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

From ESPN, Frank Gore has signed a one-year deal with the Jets. The Energizer Bunny of running backs will be entering his 16th NFL season.....as a running back, which is almost unfathomable, especially in today’s NFL.

Gil Brandt at NFL.com ranks the NFL’s most vulnerable division winners heading into 2020. I think you’ll agree with the #1 most vulnerable, I certainly do.

We come to today’s media selection:

It’s hard to top It’s Raining Tacos, but here’s a pleasant viewing experience. It’s highlights of the 2019 playoff game between the Vikings and Saints. I won’t spoil the ending. Enjoy!

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 COVID-19 DISCUSSIONS
