Wyoming’s Greatest April Fool’s Day Prank
This Friday, hundreds of people across Wyoming will celebrate April Fool's Day by pranking their unsuspecting friends and co-workers.
Here's a look back at one of the best April Fool's day hoaxes in sports history.
In the late 1970s, NBC announcers Dick Enberg and Al McGuire duped the entire country when they ranked the fictitious Wyoming State University in their Top 25 basketball poll.
Enberg and McGuire noted that the little known Porcupines had finished the season undefeated for the third year in a row.
Basketball fans across the country fell for the joke, including a Chicago sportswriter who published a feature praising the nonexistent team and University.
