Monday Open Thread

Good Morning, It’s Monday!

Your Monday Open Thread is up, running, and ready for business. I didn’t here from Gone Fishin this morning, so his alarm clock probably didn’t go off and he’s sleeping in, feel free to razz him when he shows up. This is going to be a quick post as I’m getting ready for work. 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 Monday, the greatest day of the week!

Around the DN since our last open thread:

From our friends at Baltimore Beatdown: The Kicking Crown 2020: Comparing the best NFL kickers. An annual article series to cover the best in NFL kicking.

In the Dalvin Cook will he or won’t he report or practice category: We have a correction about our previous correction.

New NFL-NFLPA Agreement Bans Partying per Wludord.
(and I see some of you still can’t follow the rules)

Vikings news from other sources:

From Head Coach Mike Zimmer addressed the media via a video conference call on Saturday and discussed his new contract, start of this unique training camp and season, Dalvin Cook and more.

League News:

I’ll toss some league news up here when I get to work if I have time. Veterans report tomorrow to start Covid 19 testing.

We come to today’s media selection:
Beastie Boys - (You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)

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, try the buffet and Welcome Aboard!
