It’s weekend eve and I’m off again until next Thursday. Besides the usual stuff about the house I need to take care of I’m darting off the Georgia this weekend to go hunting. The weekend thread will post as usual and I’ll get a game thread for the 49ers vs Packers together and posted before the game.....go 49ers! I’ve left the link to Admiral Big Guns Polar Plunge up here, if you haven’t donated and have the means to do so please help someone less fortunate. 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 take half the day off but post on the Daily Norseman while your at work, thanks.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-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.
