Good Morning!

Back on service for the next seven days, I’ll be toting my iPad with me to try and catch as much of the game as possible on Sunday. This week’s opponent defeated the Vikings in the Owl when I was four years old, I can’t manage to work up much vitriol. I did stop by their SB Nation website, Arrowhead Pride, seemed like a nice enough group from what I read. 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 go ahead and start eating the candy, Gone Fishin has plenty if you run out.

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 Welcome Aboard!
