The Falcons are taking on the Patriots tonight on Thursday Night Football in Atlanta. In case you were unaware, these teams played in the Super Bowl a few years ago and the Falcons lost after leading 28-3 in the second half. If you hurry to Twitter right now, you may still be one of the first people to make a joke about it.
Apparently, though, even God wanted to get in on the jokes tonight. The guy in the tweet above claims to be a meteorologist, so I'm taking his word for it, but apparently there will be a lunar eclipse tonight lasting 3 minutes and 28 seconds, the longest such event for the next 648 years.
I'm sure that's true, but we need to face a simple fact: if you still think 28-3 jokes are funny, you have a tiny brain.
They were funny when they actually hurt Falcons fans, which was for maybe two years. Now you just kinda make yourself look like a dumbass trotting out the most overused joke in the book. Also, you're now making those jokes to a city of fans who just won a title with a team it cares about infinitely more than the Falcons.
I still root for the Falcons to win the football games they play in. But if there's anyone out there who thinks we care even a little bit about your 28-3 "jokes", I can assure you we do not. We're World Champions. Buy the merch.
