Good Morning!

There isn’t a whole lot going on. Generally speaking no news is good news. We did have one piece of semi-bad news with Jaylen Twyman being shot. I say semi-bad because it sounds like he wasn’t really involved in an altercation and he will be ok. He just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. I’ll be looking forward to Euro 2020 resuming at 2 CST today. We have Croatia v Scotland and England v Czech Republic. I will take England and Croatia as my picks for the day.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris writes about how Sheldon Richardson Took Less to come to Minnesota

Chris also has the story, Jaylen Twyman Shot in Washington DC . Sounds like he is ok.

Vikings news from other sources:

The folks over at the Windy City Gridiron discuss their Favorite Viking of All Time

Monday Morning Mailbag over on also has their 6 Takeaways from the 2021 Offseason Program

League News:

PFF kicks off their top 50 players right now with 41-50 on the list.

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 the cows and Welcome Aboard!
