Good Morning!

I’m starting my seven on today, links and words up here will be limited based on how much time I have and depending on what time after midnight I get home. If I see anything of interest regarding the Vikings I’ll try and link it up here or post in the comments. Yes that’s Kyle Sloter in the lead picture, during the off-season I’ll occasionally use a combination of his, Chad Beebe and Brandon Zylstra’s picture as the lead in picture. As an aside, if there’s ever an issue or problem in any thread I post please use my email listed in my profile and flag the comment, that email is linked to my phone and I’ll see it whether I’m at work or not. Time to carry on with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Fire up the mock drafts and drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and have some delicious bacon.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn’t a male version of The View, so 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 waitress, try the Hatch Chili and as always, Welcome Aboard!
