Weekend Eve Open Thread

Good Morning, It’s Friday!

Like many of you I’m dissatisfied with the new commenting software, and as I posted yesterday I won’t be logging in to comment or moderating until our community is able to communicate as we were with Chorus. We’re not Aints or Packers fans so please follow the rules set in place. 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, time to get the smoker ready for the weekend.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris notes: Vikings activate Oli Udoh from COVID-19 list, waive DeMarquis Gates, no relation apparently.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings.com View highlights from Thursday’s full-team practice at Verizon Vikings Training Camp.

League News:

Chiefs, TE Travis Kelce agree to terms on four-year, $57M extension.

Seahawks cut Kemah Siverand after CB caught sneaking visitor into team hotel.

We come to today’s media selection: Disturbed “The Sound Of Silence

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, wear a mask, be a jerk and Welcome Aboard!
