Vinny DiTrani, of the Bergen Record, reports New York Giants DE Michael Strahan staged an April Fool's Day joke Friday evening, March 31, on the "Best Damn Sports Show Period" TV show. The result of the show was Strahan lying on the floor in pain at the end of the show. Giants head coach Tom Coughlin and general manager Ernie Accorsi were warned earlier in the week that Strahan and Tom Arnold would get into a "scrap" at the end of the show over some of the things Arnold said about Strahan in his alleged new book. The book, the quotes, the fight and the injury, were bogus. Rob Dibble and Rodney Peete stepped in to break up the "fracas," after which Strahan was seen writhing on the floor with what appeared to be an arm injury.
