Good morning, Chargers fans, and welcome to the first day of April.
It’s obviously April Fools Day and it’s a tough holiday to work on when you’re a journalist. You want to write joke posts and have the opportunity to pull one over on your readers, but that’s just not a good look nowadays when anything can be taken seriously if the wrong person gets a hold of it.
At any rate, I thought we’d just start the day with an open April Fools-themed discussion. What have been some of your favorite memories from this holiday over the years? What are some successful tricks that you’re most proud of?
If you want to keep the discussion football-centric, what are some moments throughout your fandom that felt like jokes were being played on you? What are some of your favorite trick plays you’ve ever seen?
You all get the picture. Feel free to discuss it all below!
And now for today’s links.
