Minnesota Vikings News and Links: April 2nd, 2020

Thorsday Open Thread


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. I’ve enjoyed the last seven days off with mrs_rob, huge bummer her business had to close due to social distancing restrictions mandated by the government because of Covid 19, but she’s resilient and has time to figure out what else she wants to do. 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 still don’t know what that means.

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!
