Merry thirsty Thorsday, everyone!

Thanks to just_rob for pinch hitting this morning, I’m a bit under the weather here.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

According to PFF, there were worse offensive lines than Minnesota’s.

Around the rest of the NFL:

From, the Chargers unveiled their new logo, this happened shortly after the team announced that they’re moving to Los Angeles.

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

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-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 get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-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.
