Good Morning, It’s Thorsday!

I’m back on service for the next seven days so links and stuff up here might get limited depending on what time I get home and how exposed I am....that’s a joke son. Back in 2011, our own Ted Glover went to training camp and interviewed Jim Kleinsasser, shortly thereafter he was declared the “People’s Champion.” Yesterday SkolTroll asked if our newly re-signed fullback CJ Ham is the new “People’s Champion” so I told him we could put it to a vote. Ted’s original article is below. 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 it’s Thorsday - I was informed this is cultural appropriation, I’m not smart and still don’t know what that means.
