1. Taylor Swift dropped her new album, The Tortured Poets Department, at midnight Friday and everyone lost their minds.

A couple of hours after the release, Swift announced that The Tortured Poets Department is actually a double album and she released 15 more tracks and everyone REALLY lost their minds.

Naturally, the album release put Swfit's boyfriend, Travis Kelce, in the spotlight.

The Swifties have concluded that Kelce is referenced on two songs, "The Alchemy" and "So High School." This development led to some amusing tweets.

2. It's wild to see where Nikola Jokić is on this list considering he's about to win his third MVP.

3. Todd McShay has been as much a staple of the NFL draft as anyone for many years. He started with ESPN in 2006, but was let go from the network in 2023 and won't be part of the coverage next week when the draft begins. He sent out an update about his absence to his Twitter followers Friday morning.

4. I'm beginning to think Tom Brady is just messing with people now about a potential comeback. I think he's having fun getting everyone all riled up, especially after he posted this on Thursday.

5. It would be a crime if I did not acknowledge the birthday of one of the all-time legendary sports broadcasters. Bill Raftery turns 81 years old today. Enjoy this compilation of some of his excellent work.
