Gone Fishin is busy with work, so I’ll be posting the thread today until Monday. I go back on service tomorrow so links etc. will get shorter depending on what time I get done with work. Also, I’m getting apathetic about this current Vikings team, I’m probably one more head shaking offensive performance from tuning out completely until draft season. Will I do that? Absolutely. 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 Wednesday.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Skoldiers - 060 - Windy City Washout hosted by Ed and Mike.
Vikings news from other sources:

We come to today’s media selection: More Cowbell - SNL
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 and embrace the mediocrity.
