Good Morning!

I mentioned in the Words No One Reads™ Friday due to the cut down I was going to split the weekend thread into a Saturday and Sunday edition. However, once the Vikings cut Kyle Sloter I had some fun posting gifs and took mrs_rob out for dinner and didn’t get a chance to log back in. Hurricane Dorian continues to dominate the news here, however if you’re a DN’er that lives anywhere along the east coast, now is the time to get ready and follow the storm track. Meanwhile, let’s 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 have a great weekend.

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. Don’t forget to tip your waiter, pour one out and Welcome Aboard!
