Christmas Day Open Thread

Good Morning and Merry Christmas!

To be honest, I almost forgot the Vikings have a game today, work yesterday was a huge kick in the gonads, plus I’m on my work rotation so I don’t pay much attention to anything other than work and sleep. Pictured above is a gif of one of our favorite Christmas movies. If you’re home with family today or have to work I hope you have a great day and Christmas. Please take a moment of your day to acknowledge our service members deployed overseas or at sea as they spend time away from their family. 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 Christmas, time to put up with relatives you only have to see once a year.

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, tip your waiter from a safe distance, have another beer, and Welcome Aboard!
