Merry Hump Day, everyone!

Hey, we’ve made it half-way through this work week, I’m pretty sure we can get to the weekend. I normally love being at work, but it’s summer time, it’s not easy to sit in the office all day. Oh well, it beats pouring concrete, I suppose.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Wludford takes a close look at Dalvin Cook, and the declining market for running backs.

Chris asks who you think is the greatest video game athlete of all time. I gotta go with Bo on Tecmo Bowl here, no question.

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

ESPN breaks down how the XFL came crashing down, and what it means for the future of spring football.

Lamar Jackson is officially the Madden 21 cover athlete, per FoxSports.

Giants Kicker Aldrick Rosas was arrested after being involved in a hit-and-run yesterday, per FoxSports. Witnesses stated that they saw the SUV crossing the center line and topped 100 mph (not sure how they know that, one of them must carry a radar. Maybe he/she is a baseball scout) shortly before the accident. Rosas then ran a red light, plowed into another vehicle, and took off. He got out and walked after his vehicle broke down, and police found him with his hands, legs, and bare feet covered in blood. Rosas was a Pro Bowl selection in 2018, I wonder if he was the last Giant to make the Pro Bowl, I don’t know who else would. Maybe the punter?

We come to today’s media selection:

Okay, so the Rojas story made me want to watch my favorite drunk guy. He decided that he needed just ONE more beer. 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 each other’s faces often, and go ahead and try the finger food.
