Good Morning!

Not sure what happened to Fishin this morning, probably more issues with his computer. Links etc will be limited as I’m getting ready for work and need to leave soon. For those interested I sent an email to Vikings.com rewards last night asking about the timing of the pre-sale of tickets on Wednesday, if/when I hear something back from them I’ll post it. Meanwhile, time to 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 go ahead leave work early, it’s Friday.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Skoldiers - 045 - Offseason Recap Pt 2 - Coaching and Offense.

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, try the purple koolaid and Welcome Aboard!
