Good Morning, It’s Friday!

If you didn’t see what I posted yesterday regarding Coral, and seriously I’m not sure how you didn’t because I posted in two different places but just in case I have heard back from Vox/SB Nation that they have heard our collective complaints suggestions and will be incorporating them into the next Coral release. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links open thread full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s weekend eve, time to get the smoker ready for the weekend.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

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 a jerk and Welcome Aboard!
