Good Morning!

Hope you’re having a great weekend, I’ll be inside all weekend gouging working but I’ll try and keep up with the thread while I’m working. We’re creeping towards the date the NFL has set to start training camps, I personally have doubts we’ll see football this year but I’m usually wrong about most things football related so we’ll see. 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 the weekend, you should get all your outdoor chores done early, fire up the smoker or grill, have a beer or two and have a great weekend.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris ponders: Minnesota Vikings Over/Unders: Danielle Hunter. The big dog will continue to eat, but how much?

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings.com: Vikings.com’s Gabe Henderson is joined by former Vikings linebacker and current radio analyst Ben Leber to look at the team’s situation at defensive end, where a long-time anchor at the position, Everson Griffen, has moved on, opening the door for young players to make their mark alongside budding superstar Danielle Hunter.

Lunchbreak: Vikings HoF QB Brett Favre, Randall Cunningham Land on Top 10 List of Retirement Comebacks.

Matthew Coller at PurpleInsider is posting his own material, this week: Friday mailbag: Kramer vs. Cousins, 3-4 blitzes and the cap’s future. Our weekly run through of Twitter’s best questions.

League News:

Consistent with the weekend thread, I’ll post league news in the comments section.

We come to today’s media selection: The Best Uncle Rob Videos of 2016 Compilation

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 wash your hands, be safe in your surroundings and Welcome Aboard!

Topic of the Day: Which, if any of the current Vikings players do you think will either make the Hall of Fame or the Ring of Honor?

Alternative Topic of the Day: Do you think the league schedule will happen as currently planned, or will the regular season be delayed?
