Weekend Eve Open Thread

Good Morning, It’s Friday!

It’s weekend eve, time to start planning what to put on the smoker or grill this weekend. I got home to late last night to catch any of the TNF game (note to the NFL, get rid of the Thursday games) but did see part of the scores via Twitter while I was at work. If you have thoughts regarding Coral (which sucks) you still have the opportunity to email Gone Fishin or myself so we can include your thoughts to the Coral developers at Vox/SB Nation. 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 Friday, time to take half a day off and start the weekend early!

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, watch out for mess from the last two three weeks, and Welcome Aboard!

Topic of the Day: So far our favorite team has an inauspicious start at 0-3. Is this weekend the best opportunity for the Vikings to get a win before week 6 against the Falcons?
