Out of the Blue

As you can see, we've decided to rebrand the site with a new name and a whole new look. It may take a while to replace all the blue with pink, but it will be a sight (site?) to behold when it's finished. For reals.

So yeah, the annual day of dread is here. As usual I'll try not to accidentally pass off any of the April Fool's Day hilarity as real news. If mistakes are made, I'll just break out the mop and clean up as best I can. As usual, actual news will probably be light as no one wants their news mistaken for tomfoolery.

Also, time begins on opening day! The Major League Baseball season begins today. The Mets finally have a new owner who has serious money to spend, so I head into the fray with newfound optimism.

Optimistic Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.

The only April's Fool I fell for this year was on "Pardon The Interruption" where they opened the show with a story saying the NFL's Jaguar head coach Urban Meyer had indicated he was "leaning" towards taking Justin Fields instead Trevor Lawrence with the first pick of the upcoming NFL draft. Reporting that Meyer's was "blown away" by Ohio State's Justin Fields pro day and with the strong recommendation from Meyer's former top assistant Ryan Day. Wilbon and Kornheiser criticized Meyer for making a "college move" and it seemed as if he was trying to "do something good for Ohio State" and was showing loyalty to his former assistant.

After revealing it was an April's Fool joke, Kornheiser said he thought the story was "reasonable" and was something which could have actually happened.
