Merry post-win Monday, everyone!
Most of America thought the Cowboys were going to win last night, and thankfully, most of America was wrong. The Vikings took off to a big lead, then gave up that big lead, then fell behind, but then......came back, and then held off the Cowboys for a win. A win. On the road. In prime time. Yessir. it was wonderful.
I want to take a moment on this Veteran’s Day to thank all of you who are serving and who have served in our nation’s military, thank you from the bottom of my heart for serving to protect the freedoms that we enjoy. Far too often, we take those freedoms for granted, so hopefully we will all take a little time today to think about and recognize how blessed we are to have the freedom we have here in this great country of ours, and if you get a chance, take a moment to thank a veteran.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Chris has your post-game wrap-up.
Linval Joseph had knee surgery last week, shared by Chris.
From Chris, the Browns’ analytic department recommended that the Browns hire Kevin Stefanski as their head coach. As the Browns tend to do, they ignored the recommendations from the people that they paid to provide them recommendations (remember Manziel over Teddy?), and hired Freddie Kitchens instead.

We come to today’s media selection:
My favorite tradition, and today, it seems to feel a bit more special to play it. STRIKE UP THE BAND!
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 tip the cows don’t forget to tip your waitress, and relish the flavor of our Cowboy taters.
