As most of you have already figured out, this morning’s blog post, “Due to historic snowfall, NCAA to move Frozen Four from Boston to Fargo” 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 five 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”
2014: “Hobey Baker committee adds Gothberg to list of finalists”
Which are your favorites? More to the point: Which, at the time, did you fall for?

The 2011 one was way too cruel, Dave.
I loved the Yale replay!
McIntyre (né Gothberg) is a Hobey finalist, and has even made the Hat Trick this year. Some of these I saw before I knew the tradition of the April Fools articles.
