Good Morning, It’s Thorsday!
I hope to be on my way to Georgia this morning to spend the weekend and early next week deer hunting; I got some pictures via email from my stepdad yesterday and it looks like the daytime activity is picking up and the bucks are starting to spar for terrority; however as usual life intrudes so I might not be able to go. If I do go and lose WiFi, I’ll get a hold of GA Skol and see if the can post a fanpost for Friday and the weekend so we have an open thread....for all 35 or so comments. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s Thorsday - I was informed this is cultural appropriation, but I’m not smart and still don’t know what that means.

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, wear a mask and Welcome Aboard!
Topic of the Day: Detroit Lions starting QB Matthew Stafford is on the Covid-19 IR list for now but could play this weekend against the Vikings; if he can’t go how are you feeling about the Vikings chances against a backup QB based on recent history?
