Happy Friday, everyone! J-dog must have tore into a 6 pack of ginger ale last night, sorry this is late. I'll just get this posted quick, then add more stories, so refresh in a half hour or so, and it'll be full.

Around the NFL:

The Seahawks put Marshawn Lynch on the reserve/retired list. People are actually saying he should be considered for the Hall-of-fame.....because of his spirit and his "signature moments". WTH?

With that, we come to today's media selection. Hey! It's FRIDAY!!!!

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

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