Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Wow, this is a day where it’s easy to give you updates.......there are none. I would tell you some jokes, but I really don’t know if that would be a good idea. My life experience has been diverse. Before I finally grew up and went to college, I did a lot of different things, I raised cattle, served in the military, worked in several fields in the construction industry, and all of those professions really added some.....color to my vocabulary. I learned a LOT of jokes in that time, but I’m not sure if I know any that are rated G, or even PG or PG-13. I’ll start one when I’m with my kiddo, but usually catch myself part-way through, and I’ll cut off the joke and tell him ‘I’ll tell you that one when you’re a little older’. Then we listen to something educational, like AC/DC.

True story, while I was away a couple weeks ago, my wife told me that they were out driving one day, and he asked her “Mom, why doesn’t your car ever play Metallica or AC/DC?” That’s my boy!

Updates from the NFL, other sports, and random oddities and annoyances:

At Vikings.com, Wobby opens the Monday Morning Mailbag.

From the USA Today, NFL investigators plan to meet with Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill this, week. The NFL previously stated that they would not interfere with the Dept. of Children and Families inquiry into Hill, but anyone who has followed the sport at all over the previous decade knew that the statement, or any other statement by the NFL, was as credible as a three dollar bill. I won’t judge the guy without knowing the full story, or until he has gone through the legal process (although I have very little trust in our legal system anymore, either), but if the league offers to put him on any type of commissioner’s exempt list, I recommend to him that he should run out of the room screaming, immediately hire an entire law firm, then book a ticket to the moon, and stay there until his team of lawyers assures him that it’s okay to come back.

We come to our media selection:

Here’s Little Richard to describe the NFL news day. Enjoy!

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-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, and try the head cheese.
