Good Morning!

It’s your Friday and my Saturday! It’s weekend eve, time to leave work early and get that grill cleaned and ready for use. As I previously commented, I won’t be posting the weekend thread as I will be spending the weekend with my wife for our anniversary, however someone has volunteered to post it so be nice. We’re creeping along towards training camp, 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 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 shrimp and grits and Welcome Aboard!
