Weekend Open Thread

2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame Fan Fest

Good Morning!

He’s home with ten toes and nine fingers, needless to say mrs_rob and I are happy I was able to spring the little guy out of county jail work the hospital yesterday. He starts physical therapy soon and I’m going to hire an occupational therapist to improve his manual dexterity.....if you’re not sure what I’m blabbing about ask and I’ll post in the comments. Now I have time to get the sprinklers fixed this weekend and cook some delicious deer on the grill. 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, you should get all your outdoor chores done early, have a beer or two and have a great weekend.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris notes: The NFL listed their Top 25 defensive touchdowns of 2019 and still missed a couple.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings.com Former Vikings player and coach Pete Bercich continues his breakdown of the team’s 15-man 2020 draft class by looking at LB Troy Dye, a fourth round selection out of Oregon and how he could make an impact on special teams early in his career, while developing into a defensive starter down the road.

League News:

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

We come to today’s media selection: Pantera - 5 Minutes Alone
(by request of the my son with nine fingers)

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!

No Covid 19 discussions.
