Weekend Open Thread

NFL: Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning!

Hope your NFL Draft weekend is off to a great start. Drafting Garrett Bradbury was a good pick, hopefully the 2nd and 3rd round picks fill positions of need and can contribute to the team on the field this year. Your Game of Thrones thread will post Monday morning courtesy of the theartistformerlyknownasfil, I’ll get it moved to the front page as soon as I see it. Meanwhile we’ll catch up on our NFC North opponents and then carry on with our news and links thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and have another cup of coffee.

We come to today’s media selection: The Doors - The End

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 waiter, try not to annoy him and and Winter is Coming.
