Minnesota Vikings News and Links: June 19th, 2020

Weekend Eve Open Thread

Robert Smith #26...

Good Morning, It’s Friday!

Kiddo (probably the age of some of you here) had a followup with the hand surgeon yesterday, his manual dexterity and mobility are better than expected; so we’ve got that going for us which is nice. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s weekend eve, knock off early and have a beer (or Zima) on me, because I’ll be having my own.

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 forget to your wash your hands, tip your waiter and Welcome Aboard!

Question of the day: Who is the best RB in Vikings history not named Adrian Peterson?
