Good Morning, It’s Thorsday
Your Thorsday Open Thread is up, running, and ready for business. It’s been a year to forget for the most part but we’ve finally reached the football stage of the year. I dropped Direct TV and cable so I won’t be able watch many Vikings games this year. I’ve toyed with the idea of getting NFL GamePass to watch once the game is done or going to a sports bar nearby, I’ll probably split between the two. 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.
