Default A Blast From The Past

Any of you remember this gag from April Fool's last year? Yup, it was our very own Jay who started the buzz.

I know, I couldn’t believe it either when I heard it, but then with the way things have been going for Hoffa, can you really argue with the guy? Next year is his contract year and since there is no way in hell he is going to get another NBA contract, I guess he is exploring his options.

Here is an excerpt from Hoop and Harm magazine:

“It is not a big deal for one to be naked in Brazil, so for me, it didn’t really matter. I was actually flattered that they asked me.” Rafael Araujo, who now plays for the Utah Jazz is no stranger to new things. Coming out of high school, “Hoffa” made his way to BYU, where after hardly knowing any English, he completed his degree in 4 years.

“I was always proud of that, but I think I will be even more proud of this photoshoot. I think I live up to my the Brazilian Beast nickname.”

The image of Hoffa running around the court for the Raptors was initially laughable, then just painful. The image of him doing it now for the Jazz makes me feel badly for Jerry Sloan. The fact that he has that team clicking like he does with Hoffa on his team is a miracle. I don’t know about you guys, but there are some things that just ruin a good day. Today was a good day. Then this came along. I really should have chosen something else to post on April Fools Day, because this started as an April Fools Day joke, then I just made myself vomit. Hope you had a good one.

I remeber this.

My first clue that it was fake was that his nickname is actually "Haffa" lol

This actually turned into something scary. It took off so quickly and was picked up in so many places, we had to get a retraction out there right away. Brutal.
