Happy Friday! For anyone new around here, on Fridays we take a break from the news and have a set of fun/happy links. Though today I must take a moment first and say I'm SO HAPPY ABOUT BRITTNEY GRINER'S RELEASE, which broke about two minutes too late to get into yesterday's links. We'll have a story about that when regular links return tomorrow, of course. On to your usual Friday programming!
