Happy Friday, everyone!

Alright, so the QBs are back at practice, Cookus has been released, and..........well, that’s about it. Not much else happening at the moment, but the fun and excitement will be upon us soon enough.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

As mentioned above, Cousins and Stanley returned to Vikings practice, and Cookus was waived, Chris has the details.

Other Vikings/NFL news and random oddities and annoyances:

From FoxSports, Darrisaw is learning from O’Neill & Hunter as he eases back into practice.

From CBS Sports, the Raiders continue to lose front office personnel, the fourth key executive in the past 8 weeks has jumped ship.

Those of you with kiddos, have you watched this yet? This is.......something.

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!
