Tuesday Open Thread: August 10, 2021

Wow, a third of a month has passed, and I barely noticed

Merry Tuesday, everyone!

Many thanks to Rob for putting up the second thread yesterday, I was out of it at the time it became necessary. I’m feeling much better, but the fatigue is still very real, and oftentimes hits out of nowhere. All of a sudden, I’m just out for several hours.....then I wake up. Really odd, especially for me.

Hey, the team signed another wide receiver, and other than that............not much to talk about. Man, I’m excited for the season to get going, it can’t get here soon enough.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

The Vikings signed WR Warren Jackson, Chris has the details.

Other Vikings/NFL news and random oddities and annoyances:

Michael Thomas tweeted a somewhat cryptic message, somewhat hinting that the Saints are trying to hurt his reputation, and Sean Payton refused to comment on it, according to Those of us who dislike the *aints and their.......leader, Sean Peyton, would not be at all shocked if the head coach wasn’t being truthful. If he was, it would likely be the first time. I hope he stubs his toe.

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 tip the cows, and keep in mind that our special on sloth soup begins at 200 comments. Welcome Aboard!
