What a great game yesterday that I was doing my best to keep up with while I was at work. I missed Stefon Diggs long reception from Kirk Cousins in the 3rd quarter and from reading Twitter the Vikings blocked a punt? I have the game dvr’ed to watch this week so no matter. Thank you to all of you who followed and posted in the game threads, that was a rough first attempt for me trying to work, follow the game and type things out. My son reminded me that 3 years ago yesterday we went to the Vikings - Jaguars game in Jacksonville and were able to meet up with GA Skol and Trueheartandpurplehead. That was a really fun day and thank you to you both for being so cordial and friendly to my son. 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 post win Monday.

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 eat the cheese and Welcome Aboard!
