LSU's athletic department is game for April Fool's day, because they are from Louisiana, and in case you didn't notice they tend to go face-first into their holidays. Who has photoshop? Someone in the LSU media department, that's who.â†µ
The article about the Tigers switching to purple turf in 2011 is filled with nice winky-winky moments: the head of "Turfus and Sons" is "Art Vandelay" and talks about a future "where grass will cease to exist," a non-existent LSU official says he's pretty sure the Roman Coliseum "doesn't exist anymore," and the entire article is about LSU switching their field to purple plastic.â†µ
Nonetheless, the obvious effort and photoshop work done here deserves some applause, especially given some of the other lame April Fool's Day stories we've already seen this a.m. Grade: solid, respectable B.
