Wow, the DN is a busy place. I guess everyone's excited for our Super Bowl run.
Updates since our last open thread:
Chris has your latest power rankings roundup.
The Vikings promoted Beavers (snicker), and added two others to our practice squad.
Peter King looks at the Vikings' special weapon on the MMBQ.
Here's a media selection for your afternoon. This is a pretty good one from Key & Peele.
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 on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the hakarl (thanks, kauabunga!).
