I’m back on service for the next seven days, my honey-do list was emptied over the last week but I’m sure it will fill up again while I’m working. Valentine’s Day is coming up, for those of you planning to participate you need to make those reservations soon. A lot of player decisions regarding the Vikings are going to have to be made this offseason, including the player in our lead photo, Dalvin Cook. 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 you can almost smell the weekend from here if you look long enough.

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 tip your waiter, and Welcome Aboard!
