Good Morning!

It’s my Saturday for the next seven days which is a good thing because I’m exhausted, work has been a kick in the gonads everyday since last week. Game of Thrones starts this weekend, (finally) so the music selections now through the weekend will have something to do with that show. Speaking of which, look for either a front page Game of Thrones article or Fanpost late Sunday evening or Monday morning for your spoiler tag free commenting; we’ll let you know where to find that article before the show starts. Let’s 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 another cup of coffee.

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 annoy your waiter, try the breakfast burrito and as always, Welcome Aboard!
