Before we kick off this week's open thread we need to congratulate the winner of last week's caption contest. With a total of 7 recs, the winner is Lost_terrapin!
In case you missed it, here's the winning caption:
A hearty congratulations to Lost_terrapin for his winning caption!
Moving right along, this week we're going to resume our normal open thread festivities with a football-related lead topic.
Today's lead topic:
If you could build a football team from scratch, who would be your first pick and why?
Think it over, and when you have an answer put it in the comments so we can all debate it and make fun of you for picking the wrong player. (Just kidding about that last part, maybe.)
Let's get this party started, shall we?
This is now an open thread!
