Thorsday Open Thread

Good Morning, It’s Thorsday

Your Thorsday Open Thread is up, running, and ready for business. I saw last night that long time Vikings player and fan favorite Everson Griffen signed with the Dallas Cowboys, good luck to him this season except when he lines up against the Vikings. I’m not able to login from work anymore and trying to load Coral on my phone is an exercise in futility, but some of you have forgotten rule number six below, “No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer,” no more stripper gifs, kthx. 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, wear a mask, be jerk and Welcome Aboard!

Topic of the Day: Do you think Everson Griffen and Brian Robison deserve to be inducted into the Ring of Honor?
