Good Morning!

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!
