Saturday Open Thread

Minnesota Vikings vs Chicago Bears

Good Morning, It’s Saturday!

We watched “Ava” on Netflix last night, it was fine but lacked character development. If you’re watching something on a streaming service and like it leave a suggestion in the comments; we’re looking at maybe Marco Polo next but I’m open to other ideas. I saw a lot of scenarios for the Vikings to make the playoffs this year, the most likely involves the Vikings winning their last three games with the Cardinals losing at least one. 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 Saturday, time to start the smoker and keep the weekend rolling!
