There wasn’t an open thread when I woke up so I’ll throw one together now. Today is my first day off so I’ll have lots of stuff to take care of around the house, since it’s a holiday I’ll post the mailbag article tomorrow. 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 Memorial Day.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Warren’s Minnesota Vikings Breakdown of the Vikings Draft Picks.
Vikings news from other sources:
From Vikings.com: Vikings WR Justin Jefferson was wired for sound during an OTA practice at the TCO Performance Center this past week.
Monday Morning Mailbag: Embracing the Offseason Grind & Early Mond Impressions.
‘A Football Life’: Life after Pat Tillman.
Top 11 all-time NFL players from service academies.
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 well and Welcome Aboard!
