3. Who Killed Joffrey?   Did Grandpa Tywin Lannisterbequeath him a poisoned sword? Did grandma-in-law Olenna Redwyne poison the red wine? Did Prince Oberyn poison the cake? Fortunately, no one ruminates about this stuff on Twitter.

5. NHL Playoffs Begin   For the first time since 1973 only one Canadian franchise, Montreal, will vie for the Stanley Cup. Didn't this country win the Olympic gold medal two months ago?
