    I didn't fall for this one, but I got rick-rolled BADLY on another board today. I had to restart my entire computer... I couldn't even close the browser because it kept popping up with new alerts that would pop up as soon as you closed the previous one. Who could create such witchcraft?

    I was thinking about it last night and wondering what practical joke news story would be posted here by a forum member as an April Fools joke. When I saw this one I knew what it was and didn't bother to open it till now.....

    I would have been more intrigue to open it, had it said "Allen Iverson reinjures back and is shutting it down for the season."


    PTI just pulled a April fools joke that I thought was true when they said that Kentucky had decided to rescind the offer to John Calipari this morining and had decided to give the job back Rick Pitino

    I am sure the Louisville alumni were caught off guard on this one, before the Mike and Tony said it was an April Fools joke....:laugh:

    I ran into something similar to that last week. Had to shut off my computer, restart and then do a complete virus scan, Ad-Aware scan & crap cleaner. Argggh!

    Sorry :redface:

    That was conveniently disguised as an ESPN link to me. Of course, you can always see what it actually is at the bottom of your screen, but I never bother to check. I fell for the bait.

    S'okay, I munged up the link. In my experience, people click first and read warnings later.

    I normally work with 20 tabs open at a time, so having to shut down my browser can cost me hours of work.

    Eyes this was a weak and dirty trick.
    I would never stoop to such a low good natured rouse.

    Hey Buck - For the record: You DIDN'T even come close to getting me with this feeble attempt at April foolishness.

    Prior to logging on to this forum yesterday, I just knew someone was going to try to pull a fast one. I thought for sure it was going to be that prankster BillLaimbeer. :heh:

    Whoever fell for this is a straight-up sucka!

    I thought it said Joe re-signing and I thought that was a joke.

    Depressed about how the season has gone, I found comfort in at least knowing that Dumars is not resigning. He's not perfect, but he is still my guy. I think it is good for Dumars to get a little dose of national doubt, taste of humility, etc. No doubt he is kicking himself over a few of his moves. He blew it by drafting Darko and he turned that into Stuck. Maybe he can turn this dark cloud into some sunshine soon with a few free agents. I think it will be easier to do it now than the first time he had to do it when the Pistons were the doormat. ....

    Sorry, I was looking for a reason to post in this thread so a few of you could have your heart stop again, even though you really knew it wasn't true. :)
