It’s weekend eve and the First Annual Open Thread Mock Draft is raging; I included link below if you want to follow along with our resident GM’s. On a personal note, I’m sad to report one of my parent’s dogs passed on Tuesday, her name was Sadie and she was a very good dog, she accompanied me on a couple of deer hunts in Georgia, her contribution was to sleep at my feet and occasionally ask for a treat....I will miss her. 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 weekend eve, time to plan the beer and meat menu for the weekend.

-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
