Monday and Game Day Open Thread

Good Morning!

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend, judging from the number of comments most of you had a four day weekend while schmucks like me had to work, and good for you. Speaking of work, I talked to Gone Fishin on Thanksgiving, he’s swamped with work and won’t be able to post the thread until the projects he’s working on get finished, so I’ll be posting the thread for the time being. I previously predicted a Vikings win in this space, (31-20) but then again no one reads the Words Up Top so I have no fear of repercussions if I’m wrong...which I’m not. Kirk Cousins and Dalvin Cook need to continue their winning ways while the defense needs a little improvement. 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 game day, time to fire up the grill, sit back and watch the Vikings win on Monday Night!

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, pass the leftovers, beat the Seahawks and Welcome Aboard!
