Welcome to the open thread, where anything goes within reason and is your daily dose of TLO randomness.
The main page historically provides open threads on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season, so feel free to participate in those while you follow along with all the exciting footballing action. I guess we've kind of taken over the weekend Open Thread duties most weekends so hang out here if you wish.
I think the Open Thread is sustainable with nothing from up here from me, but if you'd like to mix it up with a theme or poll, just drop an idea in a comment.
Like your fellow TLOers? Like music? Of course you do! Check out this handy TLO Music Recommendations Spreadsheet, courtesy of Cruyff Turns Anonymous. You can find suggestions from TLOers and add suggestions of your own, anonymously if you so choose. Happy listening!
You read, right? I know you do because you're reading this. Read books that people on TLO like. How would you know what books people on TLO like? By checking out the TLO Book Recommendations Spreadsheet, again courtesy of Cruyff Turns Anonymous. Just like the music spreadsheet, you can add your own suggestions and do so anonymously if you so choose.
