Thanks for Playing Along with Our April Fool's Joke

Many of you retweeted, shared and replied in excitement this morning when 100 Degree Hockey posted a story claiming that the Texas Stars and San Antonio Rampage would be hosting an outdoor game at Dell Diamond next season. Many of you then checked your calendar and realized that you were being duped. Happy April Fool's!

Thanks to everyone for being a good sport about the ruse. Special thanks to co-conspirators Sean Shapiro, Owen Newkirk and Nathan Mallett.

If you're interested in reading up on the responses, check out the original Tweet and the Facebook post from earlier today.


Honestly, it's not all that farfetched that Austin could host an outdoor game. You guys, the fans, were certainly excited at the prospect. The weather would have to cooperate though. I didn't name the site 100 Degree Hockey for nothing.
