April Fools’ Day might just be the most embarrassing day in America.

Each year on this day a vast multitude of unsuspecting sports fans get tricked, snookered and hoodwinked by those on Twitter looking to have a little fun.

As expected, 2023 has been no different than in years past, with Arizona sports fans taking their fair share of guffaws.

Perhaps the biggest and most entertaining of the day was the “news” that Brophy College Prep would be henceforth playing games at ASU’s Sun Devil Stadium.

Not to be outdone, Xavier College Prep got a little cold-blooded and announced a new mascot.

With the Kliff Kingsbury era still fresh in many minds – and perhaps a little raw for many – Arizona College Prep had a big announcement. Actual head coach Myron Blueford didn’t seem to mind.

Across the country, Barstool Sports’ Spittin’ Chiclets podcast had an April Fools’ Day prank for Arizona Coyotes fans.

This is just a taste, and there surely were more fools out there than on most days.

The good news? There’s more than 364 days until April Fools’ Day 2024.
