Defensive lineman David Parry visited with the Vikings last week and he’ll be spending more time in Minnesota in the weeks to come.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Parry has signed with the team.
Next week, Dan and [name withheld] will be embarking on their annual Grit Week tour, heading south. Presumably in a van or other vehicle capable of making the trek at highway speeds above the posted minimum. Check them out three times per week on Pardon My Take, even though they haven’t invited me to appear on the podcast in months.

Golden State began getting the looks it liked after halftime. The Warriors faced more stingy, in-the-face pressure from Houston, making it hard to get any early flow shooting. Durant hit his first 3 6:27 before halftime then missed from the deep the next time down.
A moment of silence was held before the national anthem for victims of the Houston school shooting.
Rockets: The Rockets surrendered 10 fast-break points in the first period while getting none of their own…. They were outrebounded 49-41 and shot 32 for 80 from the floor.
Warriors: Kevon Looney had two key blocks off the bench in the first…. Durant notched his 20th straight postseason game with 20 or more points…. Golden State is 36-5 at home in the playoffs since the 2015 postseason…. Thompson (1,786) moved past Rick Barry (1,776) for second place on the Warriors’ career postseason scoring list…. Curry (712) moved past Barry (699) into sole possession for most postseason baskets in franchise history…. The “Run TMC” trio of Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin were honored with a standing ovation during a first-quarter timeout. On Monday, Richmond will introduce Hardaway as he goes into the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame of which Richmond and Mullin are already members.
