First, thank you to Pook for sharing his story about his father yesterday.
I’ve had some stuff going on at home so it’s likely the mailbag won’t get published until Friday, I haven’t even looked at it or Twitter for questions yet.
I see RT Brian O’Neil got a bunch of dollars, I saw some numbers thrown around but didn’t see the structure, if anyone can find that post it in the comments please.
Tonight the Cowboys take on the Bucs in Tampa, I almost went with this game for the survivor pool but decided to go in another direction, here’s your reminder; get your picks in and lineup set for fantasy football.
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 Thorsday, one more day until weekend eve.
Around the DN since our last open thread:

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!
