I’m working on the Coral post today, if I can get it all typed up by 1pm I’ll post it to the front page, if not Monday will be the day; get your torches and pitchforks ready. I posted an article link from NFL.com yesterday that the trade market for Marcus Mariota has dried up but as the universe must have balance, the Russell Wilson trade news is heating up with no movement by the Texans with Deshaun Watson. 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!
