We’re waiting patiently for training camp to start and entered the “no news is good news” (with the exception of contract extensions) about our favorite football team until training camp. We’ll plod along with our daily thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Have another cup of coffee and drop by for some fan wisdom and snark. In the meantime the World Cup is going on until July 15th which about six of us here are following, I’ll be updating matches today, tomorrow and throughout the weekend, Welcome Aboard.
Around the DN since our last thread:

We come to today’s media selection: Metallica-Nothing Else Matters
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 and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, try the venison chili and as always, Welcome Aboard and Skol Vikings!
