Weekend Open Thread

John Randle

Good Morning!

Guess who got home late and had to ponder posting the weekend thread? That’s right, me! Work was a clown show (not the word I used since I can’t use the spoiler tag up here) so let’s get to it. I hope all of you who aren’t working this weekend are firing up your smokers and/or grills are sitting around and drinking a beer for the rest of us. 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 enjoy your weekend and if you have Corona make sure you have a lime handy.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris notes TE David Morgan’s contract tolls, will remain on Vikings’ roster.

League News:

Consistent with the weekend thread, I’ll post league news in the comments section.

We come to today’s media selection: Alice Cooper - I’m Eighteen

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!
