For the last several years I haven’t noticed anywhere near as many April Fool’s jokes as I saw in decades past. There could be several reasons. For example, I might just be the one out of the loop. Or totally oblivious, or no longer knowing anyone who would play those type of pranks.
In any case, I can admire a well crafted spoof – as long as no one gets hurt by it. And that is not something that always applies to what various and assorted people think is funny. It is much more fun to think about baseball (yes, sorry but we are only seven games into the ~160 of the season. This particular topic is not going to go away for a while.)
So let me leave it at: it rained, the Red Sox showed up on the field anyway, they lost. Yes, 7:0. Not bad for the first of a four game series.
