Happy Monday, everyone!

I hope everyone had a nice, enjoyable weekend. I finished my paver project. The only backyard projects left on my list for this year is to finish installing edgers and adding mulch. I have about 100 linear feet of edgers to go. I think I can finish by tomorrow night, so I’ll probably finish sometime Saturday.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris asks us to guess who was one of the NFL’s top 5 quarterbacks under pressure last year. I’m stumped. Did Ponder play last year? Even if he didn’t, it’s still his fault.

Recent reports indicate that players may not be allowed to show up until training camp, Wludford looks at how this may impact player development.

From Chris, the Vikings shared a video of several veterans returning to Normandy this past November. Awesome stuff.

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

Former NFL WR, Reche Caldwell, was fatally shot Saturday night in his hometown. Sad, far too young to die.

From, a Florida lizard broke the world poop record, but that effort wasn’t quite enough apparently, as that same lizard died constipated.

We come to today’s media selection:

I found this guy a few weeks back, and here’s another great one of his. I like this guy’s music, this is Koe Wetzel. Enjoy! WARNING: THERE ARE SOME NSFW WORDS IN THIS SONG.

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.
