You have to love April Fools' Day - especially when professional sports teams pull out all the stops to ensnare their fans in a joke like this.

Today the Colorado Rapids tricked their fans by teasing these fake "throwback" uniforms complete with stylish western style fringe. The bolero look is hot amongst scarf wearers, apparently.

 

It debuted in 1988 as "Prime Sports". It then became "Prime Sports Rocky Mountain", then "Fox Sports Rocky Mountain then "Root Sports". By this time next year the regional sports network tasked with covering Rockies baseball will become "DirecTV Sports".

Root Sports is currently a Liberty Media / DirecTV property. The company also owns the Dan Patrick radio show and the Dan Patrick TV show, Root Sports Pittsburgh and Root Sports Northwest. In 2015 DirecTV will rebrand the sports networks in the interest of better promoting its satellite television service. All of the Root channels are slated to be renamed "DirecTV Sports".

The move isn't shocking since Comcast cable currently operates "Comcast Sports Net" channels in numerous American markets. DirecTV will simply be following suit.

As far as this blogger is concerned they can call it the Mashed Potato Network if they want to so long as they keep Jenny Cavnar.

Another spark snuffed for the Nuggets

JJ Hickson has been a bright spot off the bench for your Denver Nuggets, contributing nearly fourteen points per game over the past ten and bringing some much needed energy to the floor. Now the team will have to go on without Hickson. He's the latest in a line of Denver players to suffer injury. He's lost for the season after tearing his ACL in yesterday evening's loss in Dallas.

The Nuggets are no threat to go to the playoffs. The 2013 / 2014 campaign is pretty much a lost season. Still, it stinks that they will have to proceed without one of the players who had been providing a spark.

The Nuggets have a need, a need for Faried

"Since the trade deadline, particularly since the beginning of March, Faried has begun to prove his doubters wrong. Aside from Ty Lawson, "Manimal", it can be argued, has been the Nuggets best player, averaging over twenty points and ten rebounds per game."

It’s time to end the NCAA’s big lie

"When the players do benefit financially for their play it’s in violation of the NCAA’s hard and fast rules, rules that protect their monopoly, the money printing machine that it created under the guise of assisting “student athletes”."

OK, so maybe it's not sports-related but we just can't resist a good cock shot.

A soon to be former producer at Fox 31 made the brilliant decision this morning to use Twitter as a source for images of the KOMO helicopter crash in Seattle in which two people perished. The producer searched the social media site for images associated with the hastag #KOMO. Welp, it didn't turn out so well. Live and on air he or she flipped through images that included Edward Scissorhands, some kind of omelette and a photo of a man's semi-erect penis sticking out of his pants. 

Here's the vid. Be warned. It is definitely unclean and NSFW ... but it's real and it's spectacular.
