My Top 5 April Fools’ columns on

As most of you have already figured out, this morning’s blog post, “Hobey Baker committee adds Gothberg to list of finalists” was an April Fools’ joke.

As I sat and watched the comments roll in and the retweets pile up, I was reminded of my favorite April Fools’ columns and thought I would share them with you again today…

Here are my other four favorites from years past:

2009: “Rule Change: Ties in the Frozen Four to be decided by shootout”

2011: “NCAA to drop nickname settlement and sanctions altogether if UND wins hockey championship”

2012: “Audio from ‘The Timeout’ available for the first time”

2013: “After further review: UND and Yale to replay West Regional final”

Which are your favorites? More to the point: Which, at the time, did you fall for?

One thought on “My Top 5 April Fools’ columns on”

  1. The Only one you truly got me on was the 2012 Audio one. I so wanted that one to be true. But all the others I got right away.

    Nice work as always.
