Merry Monday, DN faithful! I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing weekend, now it's back to the grind.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Ted and Eric updated the list of Vikings top players of 2016 with spots 25-21.

Chris had an exciting update on the More Than Words 2016 campaign. If you haven't donated yet, and are able, I hope you do so; it's a great cause.

The stadium doors at U.S. Bank Stadium are subject to the retractable roof rules.

Barnwell at ESPN ranked the Vikings' offensive triplets, and also the defensive triplets.

When will Teddy Bridgewater REALLY be on Family Feud?

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings.com:

Wobby posted the Monday Morning Mailbag.

CB Trae Waynes is preparing for year 2.

Here are some offseason highlights of our defensive backs.

Around the rest of the league:

From NFL.com, Calvin Johnson broke the silence on his retirement.

Jim Irsay bought a guitar once owned by Prince, per NFL.com.

Twins update:

The Twins fell to the Yankees on Friday, and again on Saturday. Yesterday, behind a stellar performance by Duffey and the continued hot bat of Dozier (and 6 home runs by the team), the Twins throttled the Yankees, 7-1.

With that, we come to today's media selection. Thanks to Tor66 for the media selection today, here are some crazy soccer fans for you. There's a spot in here where a naked woman runs on the field, so fair warning if you're at work.

Here's a link, since the embed function is......not appropriate for this video.

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.
