Good Morning!

My consecutive days of Saturday are at an end today as I go back on service, unfortunately the Vikings will play their 3rd preseason game Saturday at 1200 Central time; I’ll follow gamecast or something and then watch later in the week via DVR. 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 a corndog, it’s Thorsday.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

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.
Tip your waiter, not the cows and Welcome Aboard!
