Merry peak-of-the-week to you all. Sorry this is late, work got in the way again.

With no new news, here are some slo-mo off-season highlights from

With that, we come to today's media selection. Well, it's late and I have nothing, so here's a classic tune that everyone's sure to enjoy.

Okay, I'm having youtube issues again. I'll keep trying & I'll let you know when it's going.

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 blood sausage.
