We've moved right along to Tuesday, folks. Welcome back to your favorite Minnesota Vikings' website, where today will put the finishing touches on the biggest month in the history of the site. As always, thanks to each and every one of you for making this site what it is.

Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .

-Michael Mauti, one of the Vikings' three seventh-round picks in this weekend's draft, talked about coming to Minnesota.
