Your favorite day of the week is back. It's Monday!

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Matt Asiata and the Vikings are interested in completing a deal.

The Vikings have re-signed Andrew Sendejo to a four-year deal.

The Vikings also signed Kenrick Ellis to a one-year deal.

Mark posted Mock Draft 3.5.16.

Peyton Manning is going to retire today, per a report shared by Chris.

Vikings news from elsewhere:

Holy Moley. From Fox Sports, an NFL regional combine record for the 40-yard dash was broken at Winter Park, as Wendall Williams ran a 4.19!

Mike Zimmer hopes to honor his late wife, Vikki, with a new foundation., per the Strib

Around the league:

ESPN reported that Peyton Manning will retire today.

NFL.com looked at how Peyton Manning left his mark on the league.

Roddy White said Kyle Shanahan cost the Falcons two wins, per NFL.com.

Twins news (YAY, summer's almost here!):

The Twins beat the Rays yesterday, 5-4, with a grand slam by Park leading the way. They slaughtered the Orioles on Saturday, 13-2. Did you see Kurt Suzuki go from first to third on that errant wild pick off attempt? I think the Twins found their new speedster.

With that, we come to today's media selection (I hope). I'm going to keep trying things until I get these to embed. Here we go, my favorite drunk guy ever, and he's going to the store to get more. Gotta' admire his perseverance.

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 blood sausage.
