Happy Halloween, everyone!

Happy Halloween Monday, everyone! Man, Mondays are the best, especially when it's a Vikings football Monday. It was hard to get into any of the games yesterday, but watching Green Bay get beat (despite a valiant effort by the refs to get them the win) was fun.

We come to today's media selection. Here's one you may not have heard.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-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 potentially get someone fired or in serious trouble at their place of employment
-If you can't disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it's sarcasm
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door

With that, the beer light is down and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the blood sausage.
