It’s Saturday and time for the weekend thread. Yesterday I posted what I heard from the Coral morans via email, feel free to email them to discuss your disappointment with Coral. My answer to the question of the day: Unfortunately the Vikings will have to draft for need again rather than for the future, this team hasn’t had a 3T that can occupy space and occasionally penetrate for a run stop or disrupt the QB since.....I’m not sure. I’d also be okay with a LB or safety. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links open thread full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s the weekend, time to light the smoker and crack open a cold beverage.

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 wash your hands, and Welcome Aboard!
