Friday Open Thread: October 30, 2020

It’s finally Friday!

David Palmer #22...

Merry Friday, everyone!

Man, time flies by. I haven’t even let go of summer yet, still clinging to hope that we’ll get a couple more nights warm enough for kiddo and I to camp in, but I look out and see snow on the ground and realize that summer is long gone and winter is arriving quickly. I do love the fall, especially the pheasant hunting, which has been fairly slow so far this year. It has been slow for me and the folks I’ve talked to around where I hunt, anyway.

As our son reminds us several hundred times a day, Halloween is approaching, and will actually be here tomorrow. I have a really cool costume idea, it’s a tandem outfit for my son and I. I’ll post pictures on Monday, you’ll get a chuckle out of it (unless you’re like my wife, always worrying about goofy things like me getting arrested or me causing emotional trauma to others or other such nonsense). It’ll be funny.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Eric asks five good questions with Acme Packing Company, and he answers their questions about the Vikings.

reidellr4 posted Unbelievable!-Packer Problem.

Other Vikings/NFL news, and random oddities and annoyances:

The Falcons beat the Panthers last night on Thursday Night Football, per NFL.com. Hey, we’re not the only team to be beaten by the Falcons this year! That’s.......something.....I guess.

We come to today’s media selection:

Here is the legend George Jones and some of his friends getting our Friday off to a happy start. Enjoy!

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, it’s FRIDAY!!!!!!!!
