Merry Tuesday, everyone!

Ahh, today, we say adios to our friend, June. However, our sorrow is only temporary, as we see July making its way toward us. Speaking of warm weather, it was HOT here yesterday, 100 degrees was possible (not sure if we actually hit 100, but it had to be close), and those poor dudes had my roof on the schedule. I was impressed. They showed up at 6 am and were removing shingles by 6:02. They worked their rear-ends off, and by the end of the day, had completed my house and both sheds, and had everything cleaned up. My hat’s off to them......well, it would be if I wore a hat, but I don’t.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

From Chris, the Vikings made the list of top 1980s NFL rivalries with a surprising entry. It did surprise me, but when you think about it, we had some good games against them. That game when AC went off is still etched in my memory. My best friend at the time was a 49ers fan, which made it that much better. Then there was a game with a not-so-good ending, when Steve Young ran about 22 miles to get a touchdown to seal the win for the bad guys. I remember that one, too.

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

The Patriots continue to make the news. Robert Kraft’s prostitution case heads to appellate court, per FoxSports.

From Sports Illustrated, Ezekiel Elliot says he was ‘faded’ on Twitch. What on God’s green earth does this even mean? I don’t know what ‘faded’ or ‘Twitch’ are. Did the human bobblehead get a haircut from an epileptic? I dunno.

We come to today’s media selection:

We need to watch some football, here’s Adam Thielen’s 2019 highlight reel. Enjoy!

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Take the gender hatred elsewhere, it won’t be tolerated
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-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 try the finger food
