Wednesday Open Thread: July 15, 2020

Your peak of the week/peak of the month open thread is up and running!

Merry Wednesday, everyone!

Wow, not much news out there today, I guess I’ll get right to the topic of the day: What is your favorite meal to eat from the smoker, and what is your go-to when you’re having a get-together (if it’s something different)? For me, brisket is my favorite for a get-together. Yeah, it takes a long time, but there’s nothing better to feed a crowd. My favorite to eat has to be prime rib. To me, the flavor is unmatched.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Other Vikings/NFL news, and random oddities and annoyances:

From UPI, Philadelphia officials announced that no fans will be allowed at any potential Eagles or Phillies games in 2020.

From Sports Illustrated, an NFL scout ranked the NFC North quarterbacks.

We come to today’s media selection:

Here’s one of my current favorite singers, Chris Knight. He’s one of the few who has his own sound, and sings ‘em like he wants to. Here’s an entire performance filmed on his own farm, this is great acoustical stuff (thanks Mike!). Enjoy!

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Take the gender hatred elsewhere, it won’t be tolerated
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-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 wash your hands, touch each other’s faces often, and try the finger food.
