Saturday Open Thread

Henry Thomas

Good Morning!

I’m working this weekend so I won’t be able to sneak anything out on the grill, I’ll follow the game here and via Twitter for all the instant reactions and meltdowns. I’m heading to Georgia to hunt for most of next week, so Monday cannot get here fast enough.

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.
