Hello everyone!

Okay, so our special on sloth soup began on the last thread, so we opened this one up to accomodate everyone. To answer someone’s question in the last comments area, I’m feeling MUCH better. I still have a fever, and I’m still tired and sleeping a lot, but I’m feeling pretty well otherwise. Anyway, have at it!

Around the league since our last thread bogged down:

From ABC, Jimmy Graham makes some VERY valid points as he tears into the NFLPA on a host of subjects. Read the whole thing, it’s hard to argue with him.

Today’s media selection:

We haven’t done one of these in a while, so here we go. Here, Uncle Rob teaches us how to listen to a Luke Bryan CD. Enjoy!

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 tip the cows, try the tiger meat and Welcome Aboard!
