[Friday's FTB]: Cue dramatic music

New, comments
Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Friday, folks! Lot's of links ahead. Conference Finals start tomorrow. I'm done with my first week of summer classes. It's Friday (Friday, gettin' down on Friday). Ain't life grand? If you have any thoughts on the match-ups (or about literally anything else), leave them in the comments below!

From the Front Page:

Leaf Links:

None. Literally nothing is happening right now re: The Toronto Maple Leafs. Even the Leafs twitter had nothing to tweet about yesterday (although I suppose that's better than getting burned by the Discovery Channel).

They also tweeted out this video featuring a bunch of Baby Leafs, which is set to weirdly dramatic music and inexplicably includes a handful of black and white shots...

Maybe something newsworthy will happen today and I will look like a total fool. Fingers crossed.
