Minnesota Vikings News and Links: June 6th and 7th, 2020

Weekend Open Thread

Minnesota Vikings vs Green Bay Packers

Good Morning!

This weekend is an anniversary of important dates; none more important to me as Gone Fishin’s daughter would have turned eight on Sunday. Keep Fishin and his family in your thoughts this weekend; if you’re new and aren’t sure what I’m talking about let me know and I’ll explain. I was stunned yesterday by the announcement via Twitter from the league; maybe we’ll see some actual change now that one of the larger corporations is (finally) getting onboard. Anyway, I digress. I’m going to smoke a brisket Sunday for dinner if Costco has any, lately they’ve been a little slim with the brisket pickings. If you have questions about smoking a brisket let me know in the comments and I’ll drop you an answer. 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, you should get all your outdoor chores done early, have a beer or two and have a great but safe weekend.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris posted: More final Minnesota Vikings touchdowns. Finding some of the guys that were missed the first time. Shoutout to Funkydunkleman for putting the youtube video together. plays “Better or Worse” with NFC North teams. What do they think about the Vikings?

My poorly titled Fanpost is still going on if you want to discuss current events. (yes, that’s shameless promotion, still no shame on my part)

Vikings news from other sources:

From NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks break down which teams got better or worse in the NFC North entering 2020.

Jeremiah: Justin Jefferson Could Be An Upgrade Over Stefon Diggs For The Vikings. NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks list notable replacements for familiar faces.

Kyle Rudolph, Vikings Players Hand Out Essential Goods to Those in Need.

League News:

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

We come to today’s media selection:
Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol 1 Vol 2 Full Soundtrack (it’s mrs_rob’s favorite)

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!

Please note: I have removed the verbiage from the rules banning discussion of Covid 19; however if your comment is political in any way you’re going to be on the outside looking in....and sad and lonely without us to talk to.
