It’s Thorsday and Randy Moss Day!

Good Morning!

Football starts tonight with the Hall of Fame game as the Bears play the Ravens, good for them, but more importantly Vikings All-World WR Randy Moss will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a first ballot selection, as he should be. I’ll post the starting time of the game tonight in the thread and since I’m on call I’ll be in the game day thread, assuming there is one.

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!
