Happy hump day, everyone!

So ‘ol Phil saw his shadow yesterday. They say that when he sees his shadow, it means we have six more weeks of winter. Well, I don’t know about the weather in Puxtawney, but here in the upper midwest, if winter is already gone six weeks from now, we’ll consider it an early spring. We’re happy when winter ends before April.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Ted and Drew are back! Here’s a fresh episode of: Vikings Report With Drew and Ted, ep 5.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Take the gender hatred elsewhere, it won’t be tolerated
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-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 tip the cows and settle in, it’s going to be a long off season.
