Hey, it’s Valetine’s Day. In case you haven’t bought anything yet, here’s your reminder.

Bobby Valentine #2

Merry Valentine’s Day, everyone!

If you haven’t gotten your guy/gal a gift yet, you still have time. I love Amazon, got my shopping done right from my recliner again this year.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

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 chitlins.
