I looked at last week’s Saturday thread, giggles all around as I typed “I hope Samia can play well and lock down right guard.” Good times. I’ll be complaining about Coral in the comments today and will provide you with the contact information of the people at SB Nation and Vox who are foisting Coral on us. If you decide to contact them, remember they are people, point out the failings of Coral and how it relates to the Norseman. 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 the weekend, time to light the smoker and crack open a cold beverage.

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, and Welcome Aboard!
