Good Morning!

Hope you had a great weekend, I spent my time Christmas shopping and celebrating my son’s birthday. Also, I posted this on Saturday, going to repost here again so there isn’t any misunderstanding. I don’t know who needs to read this, but no politics. I deleted a bunch of it Friday, next I’ll delete the comments and the offender. Dead serious about this, I won’t have it on any thread I post at the Daily Norseman. 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 you should leave work early and start the tailgating, there’s a game tonight.

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 yellow snow or cheese and Welcome Aboard!
