Good Morning, It’s Thursday!

First let me personally thank cka2nd for posting the PFF grades and vhcadet for posting the SMR 2.0 via Fanpost this season, from the comments it looked like we all enjoyed them, thank you to you both. I’m back on service for the next seven days, so my fun is at an end until next week. I decided during the weekend to retire the “Thorsday” moniker, I’ve been posting that for almost three years and decided it was time for retirement. I have been mulling things over in my head for the last week; soon I’ll be posting the Daily Norseman mailbag and a series tenatively titled “Keep, Cut or Trade.” Those will have to wait until either my next off period or the start of the league offseason. 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 Thursday, one more day until weekend eve.

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 and Welcome Aboard!
