Merry Tuesday, everyone!

Alright, we have a long summer weekend awaiting us, I can’t wait. Anyone have any special plans? Kiddo and I are planning a kayaking trip on Wednesday, then we’re going to a parade on Thursday. It’s supposed to rain quite a bit here, so I think we’ll spend some time at home, and eat lots of dead animal off the smoker.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Tag along with Ted as he checks out the NFL Hall of Fame.

Another “NFL what if?” ponders ‘What if the Vikings had kept Case Keenum and Teddy Bridgewater?’.

The Wilfs will be launching an eSports franchise.

Other NFL news, other sports news, and random oddities and annoyances:

From ESPN, Kareem Hunt was questioned by police after an incident at a bar. Hunt was not arrested, and no charges have been filed.

We come to today’s media selection:

A little prelude to the Independence Day weekend, here’s Jimi playing the Star Spangled Banner. 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 tiger meat.
