Need a quick Friday fix of the sports stories everyone is talking about? You've come to the right place. Plus, we'll leave you with a tune to sing all day long.

TGIF! That important declaration out of the way, here's what's happening:

1) Gophers' forward Trevor Mbakwe has been granted a sixth year of eligibility. While Mbakwe tweeted last night that he had "nothing to report," the University of Minnesota made it official this morning.

4) A thriller in St. Paul last night, as the Wild erased a 2-0 Calgary Flames lead and won the game in a shootout on a Devin Setoguchi goal. Josh Harding stopped 27 shots and all four Calgary shots in the shootout to hand the Flames their fourth straight defeat.

5) And have you heard the Timberwolves sing Britney Spears' "....Baby, One More Time?" If not, you're just not livin' right. Let's fix that right now:
