Thorsday Open Thread

Good Morning, It’s Thorsday!

I’m back on service for the next seven days, so words up here no one reads might get shortened based on what time I get done at work. 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, but I’m not smart and don’t know what that means.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Unbelievable! - Anthony Harris Appreciation Day. BJ Reidell and Drew Mahowald discuss the importance of Anthony Harris in the Minnesota Vikings defense and plenty more.

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!
