A brief note from me: Yesterday’s limited and very tame message (especially from me) was in response to a post about politics, I realize some of you are new but note the rules and take this as a reminder, we don’t do politics here. There are literally a million other places on the internet to talk politics, this isn’t one of them. I saw Tom Brady had a good time yesterday at the parade, I thought about it and if/when the Vikings ever win an Owl I’m going to the parade and not drinking a drop of alcohol, I want to remember each and every minute and soak it up. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links open thread full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s Thursday, it’s going to be a long offseason so stock up on your hawt taeks now.
Around the DN since our last open thread:

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, tip your waiter from a safe distance, and Welcome Aboard!
