[Disclaimer: I hate today so much. I know what you're thinking, "but Stace, you lie all the time in your posts," well smart guy, I know that, but I'm good at it. Today is the one day a year where unfunny people try to dip into the satire market and it's the worst. There's no point to bother reading anything on the internet today, which is why I'm mad that I'm writing this. I would have liked to write a post where I make up lies about Joe Sakic but since it's April Fools, what's the point?

We don't write about stats here at Battle of California because it's boring and literally anyone can do it. Not everyone can write comedy/satire, so just, please don't try because you're terrible.]

Oh boy, he's done it again. Steven, Steven, Steven.

If you recall, Steve Simmons is a MSM dude who writes for the Toronto Sun. He's famous amongst us twitter folks because of this:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Good thing the Leafs don&#39;t play in the CHL. The CORSI hockey league. They&#39;re doing just fine in NHL, though.</p>&mdash; steve simmons (@simmonssteve) <a href="https://twitter.com/simmonssteve/status/395375707821309952">October 30, 2013</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

And this,

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>.<a href="https://twitter.com/simmonssteve">@simmonssteve</a> who are you and why are you talking to me?</p>&mdash; Jose Bautista (@JoeyBats19) <a href="https://twitter.com/JoeyBats19/status/517179902215585792">October 1, 2014</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Oh and lastly, tweeting out, instead of DMing, his phone number.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>if you&#39;re worried about your DMs to steve simmons being made public, you can just phone him instead <a href="http://t.co/5K0twfYKfT">pic.twitter.com/5K0twfYKfT</a></p>&mdash; Bread Frathwaite (@bookofloob) <a href="https://twitter.com/bookofloob/status/583103827865313280">April 1, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

And those four things are literally everything I know about him, because who gives a shit. Anyway, everyone was on point last night, so here are the best tweets:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>"<a href="https://twitter.com/simmonssteve">@simmonssteve</a>: Apologies for DMs that somehow wound up not being DMed"&#10;&#10;Steve text me so we can continue chatting. </p>&mdash; Mike FAIL (@mikeFAIL) <a href="https://twitter.com/mikeFAIL/status/583099175681683456">April 1, 2015</a></blockquote>

Good work, everyone, way to actually contribute to something funny on April Fools Day. And Steve, it's okay buddy, you'll figure out how to work those DMs one day.

Gameday!

The elusive Sharks-Avalanche rivalry is reignited as both teams fight over who Teemu Selanne was more worthless for.
