Good Morning, It’s Friday!

Not much news concerning our favorite football team right now; actually there isn’t a lot of NFL news either. Then again, when has that ever stopped us from filling up a thread with gifs and speculation? 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, knock off early and have a beer (or Zima) on me, because I’ll be having my own.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Norse Code Podcast Episode 327: The Illusion of Work. Arif and James are back to go over the mailbag while Ben Solak comes on to discuss the only real NFL news we had over the last two weeks - the Patriots picking up Cam Newton for pennies.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings LB Eric Kendricks was wired for sound during a pair of games during the 2019 season. Watch back some of the best moments he had during those two contests, including some never-before-seen footage + sound.

League News:

State of the Franchise: More magic from Ryan Tannehill and Titans?

Cam Newton: ‘It’s not about money for me; it’s about respect’

We come to today’s media selection:
The Jimi Hendrix Experience - All Along The Watchtower

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 your wash your hands, tip your waiter and Welcome Aboard!

Topic of the Day: Do you follow any players on social media? If yes, why and if not, why not?
