Good Morning!

I’m off service and not working for the next seven days, I have a thrilling week of getting the honey-do list taken care of while I’m off. Speaking of not thrilling, the Vikings pre-sale ticket thingy was a bust for me, I did get in and find some sweet endzone tickets but I looked and could have purchased them for less on the secondary market. We’re on the home stretch for the start of training camp, as I see Vikings related news during the day I’ll post it, if you see Vikings news on the twitterz or elsewhere that I didn’t see feel free to post in the comments. Meanwhile we’ll 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 and have another coffee, it’s Thorsday.
