Good Morning!

If you didn’t get a chance, take the time to watch Brian Robison’s retirement press conference available as replay on the front page. After watching and listening to Brian it showed what a quality player and person he is. The Vikings have signed all of their draft picks (except one) so they got that going for them which is nice. It’s the post draft pre-training camp lull for the football world, there isn’t much going on but idle speculation and one more episode of Game of Thrones. 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.

-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 the guacamole and Welcome Aboard!
