Good Morning!

I generally dislike the early bye week for our favorite team, but it seemed to work in their favor as they’ll be able to get some guys back from IR and take care of the knicks and nagging injuries. I did hunt last week, had a very successful season so far, I’ll go back in a week or so when the rut should be starting. Since I have time this weekend I’ll probably throwing a butt on the smoker Sunday.

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.
