I’m going skip looking at Vikings players either on the bubble due to salary cap or pending free agency for a day, the idea I “borrowed” from Gone Fishin will return tomorrow because it’s Valentine’s Day. Why? Because I decided so, plus I have to dip into the 80’s music vault today, we’ll go back t the 70’s tomorrow. Meanwhile, let’s carry on with our news and links open thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and if hurry you have time to grab a card and flowers at a gas station on your way home, and maybe grab some sushi while you’re there.

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 annoy your waiter, and Welcome Aboard!
