Just finished my seven on last night, and I’m tired. Links up here no one reads might be limited, if they are I’ll put more up in the morning after coffee. Tonight’s Thursday Night game is Eagles v Packers, I’ll put up a game thread if I have the time and it’s time for my yearly old man rant, “get rid of the Thursday Night Games.” If you’re in a Survival League today is the day to make your pick. 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 go ahead and have a long lunch, it’s Thorsday.

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 Welcome Aboard!
