Friday Open Thread

Good Morning!

This is your Friday Open Thread, after thinking way too hard about my survivor pool pick I went ahead and stuck with the Colts this week; 30% of he remaining players agreed with me...probably shouldn’t.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

There’s more in the media vault, cheque it out.

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.
