Minnesota Vikings News and Links: April 10th and 11th, 2021

Weekend Open Thread

2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame Fan Fest

Good Morning!

We seem to be entering a void of news prior to the draft, this happens every year but I’m still holding out hope for a veteran WR3 signing. I got the shed ordered yesterday, delivery will be in about a month or a little more so I have plenty of time to get tools etc ready to go. I timed delivery on my week off and drafted my youngest to run electricity out to it once I have the frame up. I watched Godzilla v Kong last night, it was everything that 10 year old me looked for in the Godzilla movies. The Open Thread Mock Draft is continuing in the Fanpost section, likely by now some of the GM’s have dropped out, if you’re interested get over there and sign up for a team. Meanwhile, we’ll carry on with our news and links open thread full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s the weekend, time to fire up that mock draft simulator, bonus: we’re getting closer to the draft with every passing day.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

(there is questionable language in here, don’t play this if you’re offended)

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, tip your waiter from a safe distance, try the brisket, and Welcome Aboard!
