Monday Open Thread: January 11, 2020

A couple of somewhat surprise wins over the weeknd, and some good games!

Jeff George #3...

Merry Monday, everyone!

I hope everyone’s weekend went well. Mine did, but it also went way too fast. Oh well, at least it’s Monday. Hey, we’re kicking off week number two of the Vikings’ off-season. Just think, only 27-ish more weeks until training camp, @it’ll be here before you know it@. I know that by the time you read this, you’ll all know the final score, but right now as I write this, the Browns are kicking the dog snot out of the Steelers, 28-0 in the first quarter.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

From Chris, will this be the year that the Vikings lose George Paton? There have been rumors regarding Paton getting a GM position several times in recent years, but to this point, he hasn’t left.......yet.

Adam Thielen is auctioning off his Alex Trebek cleats, per Chris.

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

Here are all of the NFL scores and highlights from the weekend, courtesy of FoxSports.

We come to today’s media selection:

This was my kiddo’s favorite video back when he was 2 or 3 years old. “Hey dad, can we watch that crazy man again?” Yep, you bet. 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 forget to tip the cows and settle in, it’s going to be a long off season.
