We’re in uncharted territory here at least in my memory; major sporting events are getting canceled and large group events are being discouraged. The county (in Florida) I live in sent an email out that said “we are cancelling large group events and encouraging social distance in business of at least six feet.” Not talked about in all this (and please understand I am not personally mitigating the death or serious illness of anyone) is this will impact small businesses before large corporations....mrs_rob is a small business owner, (yes we’ll be fine, however mrs_rob’s business might go under for good). Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and you should leave early today and avoid social interaction except for here, because my goal this offseason is now three open threads in a day.
Around the DN since our last open thread:

We come to today’s media selection: Tom Petty - You Don’t Know How It Feels
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, don’t touch your waiter’s face and Welcome Aboard!
