Sunday Open Thread

Minnesota Vikings vs Green Bay Packers

Good Morning!

I knew yesterday’s weekend thread was going to get shoved down the page, happens every year, I had already planned to go ahead and post a Sunday thread. The Vikings made a record fifteen selections and already have twelve picks in next year’s draft. I did read a couple of places that because of thevirusthatshallnotbenamedhere the Vikings strategy was to draft guys who might otherwise be UDFA’s. 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 you should stay home today, avoid social interaction except for here and have a great weekend.

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!
