Good Morning!

Shoutout again to Skoldiers for dropping a thread while Fishin’ and I were working on Tuesday, we’ll try not let than become a regular occurrence. Regarding our offensive coordinator, although I’m one of the fastest pitchfork sharpeners out there I think he needs time, now whether that amount of time ends after this season or at the end of another season isn’t up to me. A better offensive line, actual 3rd WR and a fully health Dalvin Cook all go a long way to cure what ails the Vikings offense. While we’re waiting for the next Vikings game to start we’ll continue with our news and links full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Have another cup of coffee and drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and a virtual donut. With that, let’s do this, beat the Seahawks!

-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.
