Friday Open Thread: July 10, 2020

Yee-haw! It’s Friday!

Merry Friday, everyone!

We’ve made it to the one day of the workweek that is better than Monday. Anyone have any plans for the weekend? This will probably come as a shock to you, but I plan to fish.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris asks you to name your all-time favorite player from each NFC North rival. That’s easy for me, Barry Sanders, Walter Payton, and Brett Favre (he’s the only guy from that team that I like).

Wludford posted NFL vs. COVID-19: A Preview.

The NFL’s best stadium was named the NFL’s best stadium, per Chris.

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

From FoxSports, ESPN asked NFL execs to rank the top running backs in the league.

From FoxSports, DeSean Jackson made some dumb a**, anti-Semitic comments on social media. He apologized later. Here’s a good rule to live by: If you’re thinking of publicly quoting Hitler......don’t. Idiot.

We come to today’s media selection:

Here’s my favorite Friday song, from the Possum himself, along with some help from many Looney Tunes characters. 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.
