April Fools!

Don’t joke around on April Fools day! Some people knew that our post this morning was a joke as soon as they saw it and some people opened it up knowing it was a joke and still were fooled (via Reddit):

My girlfriend sent me the link and I went into it knowing it was a joke but then thought to myself how obvious that would be, and actually began believing it about halfway thru.

Don’t get fooled like my hungover dumbass self did!

Some people hate us for the joke. Sorry? It read APRIL FOOLS at the bottom. You just had to read it all the way through.

Even the local radio station fell for it:

We apologize for pulling on those strings of your heart. It is April Fools day though.

Just a warning, we will probably make another FAKE post next April Fools. Shenanigans will occur. It happens on a lot of sites.

To save you from any of the other posts, I will just let you know the other things that ran through my mind for this day:

  • Philip Rivers was going to get his wife pregnant again.
  • Antonio Gates was going to announce his retirement. This would be his last season.
  • John Pagano was going to switch to the 4-3 defense.
  • Ryan Mathews was going to get arrested in PB.

There were a number of things that could have been posted, but we will stick with the one for the day. Maybe next time we will keep it more light hearted… maybe not.

We love y’all. Keep smiling and Happy April Fools Day.

    You are priceless, Ernie. It was great. And we can’t be a bunch of duds. It’s April Fools’ Day. I fell for it all the way and told everyone at work about the stadium deal. It was hilarious. Conor took a bit of a ration from folks, but he handled it like a pro. I think someone wants Conor banned. lol
