Welcome one and all to the OTA - Off-Topic Activities or Open Thread All!. The best place to not discuss football at Pats Pulpit.
This is a thread for anyone who would like to enjoy some pleasant conversation that may or may not be football related. This is a place where some of us can get to know each other a little bit better, and on a slightly different level than other places on the site. A thread that may contain at times humorous dialogue, quotes, pictures, or anything else that might entertain. Remember to have a good time! But also please remember to keep it somewhat clean. We'd prefer innuendo over gory details.
All the rules are based on this: Have fun, but don't keep other people from having fun.
a) Don't troll each other, or attack other members. You learned this in kindergarten.
b) If a picture is NSFW (Not Safe For Work), do not post it as a picture. Instead post it as a link.
c) Be kind to newbies, and help them fit in. Remember to share your crayons.
d) If someone asks you nicely to steer clear of a topic, find something else to talk about.
e) Any and all other SBN and PatsPulpit rules apply. In other words, this ain't Vegas.
Rec this thread, so it stays atop the most rec'd fanposts. Unrec it when another thread is made.
