Merry Wednesday, absolutely everyone!
We’re at the peak of the week, and as we coastline towards another glorious weekend, we have a bit of a reward waiting around for us this weekend, as we have the Merge to glimpse ahead to. I’m not certain how considerably we’re on the lookout ahead to it, I never intend on staying connected to the recliner to watch a 3-day keep track of meet up with, but at least it is a thing football similar to have on the Tv even though we go by means of our typical weekend routine. It is nevertheless WAY below zero here, so I’m going to concentration on steering clear of the cold as considerably as humanly doable. You are going to never ever hear me complain about the warmth, but I begin to grumble when we’re in our 4th or 5th thirty day period of wintertime, and it is nevertheless sub-zero. I’m all set for summer season. I do get to go to South Carolina next week for a meeting/conference detail, so that will be a considerably welcomed reprieve from the weather conditions here in Antarctica.
All around the DN due to the fact our final open thread:
Chris shared a rumor coming out of Colorado that suggests the Vikings are intrigued in Billy Turner, an offensive lineman currently with the Broncos. Turner is a Minnesota indigenous, but extra importantly, played football at NDSU. For that reason, I’m all for it.
From Chris, in an job interview with Courtney Cronin at ESPN, Latavius Murray stated that he’s on the lookout for a commencing part. I never think he’ll get that part with the Vikings, but he’s been a sound 2nd again in his time here. It would be great to be equipped to continue to keep him, but it is on the lookout like that may be tough.
Another member of the Vikings secondary obtained some praise from PFF, as they named Mackensie Alexander the Vikings’ most improved participant.
Vikings information from elsewhere and information from all-around the league:
Very well, that didn’t final extended. Randy Gregory has been suspended…..all over again, per NFL.com. This time he is suspended indefinitely (which indicates he may be reinstated tonight, or he may be set on double-key proabation until eventually he’s 84 years old, it actually is dependent where by the wheel lands) for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. I speculate if there is a video clip of him abusing a substance?
The level of competition committee met after extra to take into consideration the use of replay critique (nevertheless hoping to silence the hypocritical whiny bleating of Saints enthusiasts), but NFL.com reported that it does not surface the committee strategies to make any alterations.
We come to today’s media collection:
You all know the Minneapolis wonder, very well here is the 1980 edition, the Wonder at the Fulfilled. This is a single of my to start with memories of the Vikings, at the starting of my Vikings fanhood, which has not waned a single bit in nearly 40 years. Love!
