Late Friday/Weekend Open Thread

Hey, figured I’d have a place to comment & keep up

Merry late Friday & weekend, everyone!

It’s been busy, so I figured I’d have an overflow tank for the Free Agency thread. I’ll try to get by & update, as I’ll probably be inside most of the weekend. We’re expecting a foot of snow, so I guess I won’t be out fishing.

Updates since our last thread:

The Vikings have signed Mike Remmers for $30 million, per Ted.

Chris has a Free Agency Tracker for you so you can keep up with all the latest & greatest.

From the Twin Pioneer Press, Cordarrelle Patterson has suitors.

Hey, I like the signings we’ve made in free agency, and I like the approach Rick has taken this year. OL has become a very weak spot, somewhat because of poor drafting, somewhat because of a scheme that’s tough on O lineman, and somewhat (a lot) because of a horrible rash of injuries. But, they saw the problem, acknowledged it, and addressed it. Good job by Rick & Co., IMO.

Here’s a little media selection for your weekend enjoyment.

These guys came up in conversation, so here you go, enjoy a little Jackyl.

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 menudo.
