Here are some examples of April 1 headlines that turned out to be completely real. Singer Marvin Gaye was fatally shot by his father, Marvin Gaye Sr., on April 1, 1984. The news was so shocking and the timing so unfortunate that even Gaye's close friend Smokey Robinson thought it was a morbid prank by the disc jockey on the radio station where he heard it.

Jets' Nathan Beaulieu out for season following shoulder surgery

  Jets' Nathan Beaulieu out for season following shoulder surgery Beaulieu was playing with the injury this season but hadn’t suited up since exiting a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs in early March. In all, his year will end with 25 games played and just a single assist. Fortunately for the 28-year-old defenseman, his contract extends through next season so he won’t have to try and find work coming off a major injury. Though obviously losing Beaulieu isn’t ideal, being able to move his contract—which carries a $1.25M cap hit—to long-term injured reserve does give the Jets a little more flexibility at the upcoming trade deadline.
