Monday Open Thread: April 5, 2021

Wow, that weekend was over before it started, Monday snuck up on me.

Merry Monday, everyone!

Hey, my apologies, but the words up top will be few today. The weekend flew by, as did yesterday, and Monday was upon me before I knew it. It’s past my bedtime as I start this, so you won’t get much today, but I’ll try to double the amount of nonsense I normally put up here for you to read in tomorrow’s thread. Until then....SKOL!!!!

Around the DN since our last open thread:

wludford takes a look at some of the changes we may see on the Vikings defense in the 2021 season.

Hale Hentges announced his retirement from the NFL, per Chris. I’ll get a second thread ready to handle the comment count that’s sure to come from this.

Other Vikings/NFL news:

From NFL.com, Tom Brady’s rookie card sold for a record $2.25 million. Speaking of bats**t crazy prices, the 49ers are asking for a first-round pick in exchange for Jimmy Garoppollo.

We come to today’s media selection:

Here’s one of my favorite current artists singing one of my favorite tunes. This is Chris Knight with Down The River. 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 starting to get exciting.
