Minnesota Vikings News and Links: March 23, 2020

Show of hands, how many of you are working from home today?

NFL: NFC Divisional Round-Minnesota Vikings at San Francisco 49ers Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Merry Monday, everyone!

As of last Friday, I’m working from home for an indefinite period of time. It’s kinda neat, now I can go to work naked and not get arrested again. Anyway, I hope all of you are making it through okay while we wait this out. I’m getting a lot of to-do’s knocked off of my list at the house.

I installed new wood in the floor of my boat, and on Saturday, I put down the fiberglass mesh and covered it with resin. Holy hell, does that stuff stink. You have to keep the temp above 60 while it cures, but you have to ventilate it or the entire house stinks, so it’s been a 3-day fight keeping enough air moving while also keeping the temperature above 60. Hopefully tonight it will be cured so that I can pull the boat outside. I’m ready to have my garage back.

We come to today’s media selection:

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
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm.
-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, and try the rocky mountain oysters.
