Around the rest of the NFL:
Tony Romo failed to qualify for the U.S. Open after shooting a 3-over 75, per ESPN.
Aldon Smith thinks he’ll be reinstated soon, per Fox Sports. Personally, I think he’s delusional, he isn’t staying out of trouble, so I highly doubt he’ll be reinstated, but it is the NFL, so who knows?
We come to today’s media selection.
Here’s some Jerry Reed to get your Tuesday goin’!
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
-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 tiger meat.
