Good Morning!

GA Skol and I did a quick Zoom meeting yesterday; I’ll be hosting a meeting tonight for the 2nd and 3rd rounds tonight, look for separate article later today on how to join. How was everyone’s draft night yesterday? Pleased with the first two selections the Vikings made? There are still quality interior defensive lineman on the board, I’d expect a move up this evening by the Vikings. 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 weekend eve, stay home unless you’re working from home.

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!
