As I was packing for work yesterday I was going through my mental checklist: (1) general bad attitude towards my lazy colleagues? Check! (2) Laptop, so I can DN at work and post the threads? Check! (3) Mouse, so I don’t have to use the slide thingy on the laptop? Boomer Phail! Links will be short today because I’m accidentally erasing stuff as I type....I blame Ponder. Last week (or some time before that) someone mentioned they liked 70’s music, so I’ll be playing 70’s music all month just for fun. 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.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Vikings news from other sources:
The “Good Morning Football” crew debates which wide receivers duo they’d rather have between Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry of the Cleveland Browns or Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs of the Minnesota Vikings.
Veteran DB Eric Weddle retires after 13 seasons.
We come to today’s media selection: VAN McCOY - The Hustle
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!
