A Peek into The Goat Parade's Weekly Editorial Meeting

Chelís: Very busy (in our minds) - USA TODAY Sports

Hi everybody! You may have heard the "news" today that Herculez Gomez was joining Chivas USA this summer, followed by the reveal from the club that it was an April Fool's prank this afternoon. We may have dropped a tweet along the way to facilitate the joke, but don't worry, we're up on the straight and narrow from here on out!

At any rate, we wanted to share with you some of the many ideas we came up with for April Fool's Day, without subjecting you to further confusion and shaking of heads. During our last couple weekly editorial meetings, we mooted some ideas of what to post today. Here were some of the ideas from Matt Hoffman, Rachna Kapur, and myself:
