Yahoo! News had a fantastic sports related story on the main page this morning. I appreciate a good practical joke, but this was quite impressive. Brett Myers (the guy with the goatee in the video below) of the Phillies involved so many people in this ludicrous gag that second year player Kyle Kendrick had no chance. The video starts with the team manager calling Kendrick into his office to explain that Kendrick had been traded to Japan (which, in reality, isn't even possible). As this is being discussed, the Phillies' assistant GM hands over paperwork to sign. After leaving the office Kendrick passes on the details of the situation to Myers (who masterminded the prank). Following this interaction, Kendrick has to discuss his feelings about the trade to the media. Finally, Myers tells Kendrick that he's been "punked" and that it was all made up. It's great seeing the relief on Kendrick's face after being told it was all fake. From management to the players to the media, the prank was perfectly executed, captured on video and now released to the public. Check it out.
