It’s thirsty Thorsday!

Happy Thorsday, everyone!

Hey, we’ve nearly made it through this work week, and the Vikings next preaseason game is only two short days from today. Wow, Cameron Smith announced his retirement, that was a bit of a surprise, but it sounds like he felt his decision was the right one for him and his family, so nothing but the best to him as he moves on to the next chapter in his life. After going through open heart surgery a year ago, and battling back to make it back onto the field, the dude must be tough as nails. I’m sure he’ll find success in whatever he decides to do.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

As mentioned above, Cameron Smith announced his retirement from the NFL, Chris has the details.

Other Vikings/NFL news and random oddities and annoyances:

From CBS Sports, A-a-ron Rogers says he ‘doesn’t want a farewell tour’ in what may be his final season in pee yellow and baby poop green. Ummmm.....was somebody offering him a farewell tour? Maybe I missed something. The narcissism runs deep in this one.

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 remember that our daily special on sloth soup begins at 200 comments. Oh, and Welcome Aboard!!!!!
