Imagine my shock yesterday when I was scrolling my Facebook feed and saw that University Of Alabama Crimson Tide head football coach Nick Saban had abruptly retired.

At first, I was like, "What?! How can this be?!" Then I remembered what day it was. Yup. I had been the victim of a bad April Fool's Day joke.

This "joke" seems to make its rounds on social media every year. Many of you may have also seen the meme with the large yellow and red font displaying RETIRED across an image of St. Nick. It seemed legit. I mean, it came from an official-looking Alabama Crimson Tide on Facebook page and everything.

Alas, it's entirely, 100% NOT TRUE and my sources tell me that Coach Nick and Mrs. Terry are here to stay. It did fool a few people though. Hopefully next year on April Fool's Day you won't be one of them.
