Good Morning!

Let me sum up my feelings about Sunday’s game against the Bears...blah. I’ll have more words today in the comments. In the nobodycaresaboutmyffteam section I did win my second match of the season and am still alive in the Official and Unofficial Daily norseman Survival Leagues. Meanwhile, let’s carry on with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and post a gif, you’ll get lots of recs and what the heck, it’s Tuesday.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-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 waiter, embrace the mediocrity and Welcome Aboard!


Is it time to bench Cousins and see what the Vikings have in Mannion?
