Good Morning!

How was your weekend? With a Vikings win the march towards 4-0 in the last four games is on track. Speaking of which, at times the words up here can become shallow and pedantic, I’m aware of that and will work harder. In the noonecaresaboutmyffteamnews, I lost (as is the custom) but even better I had the Jacksonville Jaguars defense...the got me -3 points, yes they lost me points. 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 it’s Tuesday, one day closer to being the weekend.

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, don’t be shallow and pedantic and Welcome Aboard!
