Thank you for all the wishes and thoughts in the comments yesterday, I am loathe to put much if anything personal on social media because once it’s out there it’s there forever but I thought I owed all of you an explanantion. The big news yesterday was the Eagles trading Carson Wentz to the Colts for a 2nd and 3rd, (that second will turn into a 1st most likely) so......your move Vikings, get it done, or not. 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 really weekend eve this time, plan the beer and meat menu for the weekend.

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!
