Woo Hoo! It's Monday. I love Mondays, especially when I'm getting paid and not working. Sorry this is late, I had some network issues.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris has your full list of attendees to the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine.

Arif posted Podcast #120: Super Bowl, HOF, Wade, Schedule.

Used Robot Salesman posted the recipient of the 2015 Kleinsasser Award, and the winner is......Joe Berger.

Chris said that the Vikings need to answer the Kalil question soon.

Chris also wondered what will Harrison Smith's contract look like.

The Gjallarhorn is relocating at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Mike Zimmer , after two years on the job, has the longest tenure of any head coach among the Twin Cities' "big four" sports teams.

Vikings news from other sources:


Rick Spielman is excited for Teddy Bridgewater's future in Minnesota.

Current and former Vikings are going to appear at the first ever Polaris-Vikings Winterfest.

Craig Peters has a nice write-up on the determination of Frederick Douglass.

Around the rest of the NFL:

Yahoo Sports thinks Brock Osweiler will be an intyeresting figure this NFL offseason.

Here's how Denver's defense shut down that powerful Carolina offense, per Greg Cosell at Yahoo Sports.

RGIII passed his exit physuical, which paves the way for his release.

With that, we come to today's media selection. I love dogs, here are a bunch of funny ones for your entertainment.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags 
-No pictures that could potentially get someone fired or in serious trouble at their place of employment
-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. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the fleischkeukle.
