Saturday Open Thread

Minnesota Vikings vs Green Bay Packers

Good Morning!

Welcome to any Packers fans who found our Saturday Open Thread; please note the rules below because we have standards.....very low standards. Consistent with our open thread policy of welcoming fans from other teams, please state your favorite beer, list any smoker or crockpot recipes and post a gif or two.

I looked at last Saturday’s Open Thread, I had a predicted a loss to the Chargers “in which the Vikings find a new and dumb way to blow a lead and lose.”

I’m going out on a limb here today and calling a Vikings win 30-24, if the Vikings lose feel free to call me a moran on Monday and fire up the mock drafts for a GM/HC combination.

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.
