In this surreal time of not being able to keep track of day whaat day it is, the calendar actually flipped to April. Yes, today is April 1, a.k.a. April Fools’ Day.

So we wanted to have a little levity from the heavy news bombarding us without making light of the seriousness of the coronavirus crisis.

The poll below features six tough moments in Raiders’ history, listed in chronological order. Which of those events do you wish was just some bad April Fools’ Day joke and didn’t actually happen?
