I am going to be working the semi-finals of an over 30 league on April fools day. I was wondering if any of you witty forum members have any April fools jokes I can use on these guys,before or after the games. Thanks in advance.

A fake toss is always good for a few smiles.

(1) Go to a novelty store and buy a pair of those glasses that are like two miles thick, but are just glass (ie. they don't distort your vision - you don't want to damage yourself).

(2) Maybe walk in with a cane, or a fake leg cast.

(3) Through a football flag for the first foul... then say "oops... wrong sport."

(4) If you have a friend that works for PBS/local TV, have him/her come in as if the game is televised.

A blind man's cane.

Throw a flag at the first foul.

An umpire's mask and chest protector.

If it were me, The fake toss is as far as I would go.

Tim-

I don't have what Brian calls "the onions" to do any of them. But it's been fun to think about it!!

As Gallagher would say..."Just to be funny"....

(1) Fake toss is good, or you could drop or bounce it downwards instead of toss,
(2) flag is good...how about soccer ref cards...flash a red or yellow card on a foul
(3) get a player to hand you some money when you make a call on the other guys,
(4) exagerate you mechanics and invent new ones,..maybe hand out a "bus pass" for a travel call, call a foul like "assault and battery on 32", "molesting", "offense touching",
(5) when they complain about a call yell out, "Hey, I'm blind not def."
(6) have a ball with no air in it to switch on a time out or throw in (a la Globe Trotters)
(7) wear different color socks or hike up your pants (like Erkel), a wig, make up (if you're Benny Hill...lol)
Have fun....and remember...
If you think no one cares that you're alive, try missing a cr payment.

I just had another...
How about when you call a foul...you throw out a rubber chicken?
See that's funny because a chicken is a fowl...blah blah blah

Or hand out some deoderant for a foul smell.

I've lost it haven't I? Here comes the wagon and the guys with my new white jacket...

I used my sunglasses and the antenna from a volleyball net to try the old I'm blind trick. I think only the coaches got it.
