City of Boston celebrates March 28, otherwise known as ‘Falcons Day.’ Think about it.

Charlie Baker officially proclaimed February 27, 2017 as New England Patriots Day, in honor of the team’s Super Bowl LI win.

And four weeks later, the City of Boston unofficially commemorated Tuesday in honor of the Patriots’ Super Bowl LI opponents. Give it a second, if the underlying meaning doesn’t immediately sink in.

“Falcons Day” — as March 28, or 3/28, was mockingly dubbed — was widely celebrated on social media Tuesday in observance of the Patriots’ historic comeback. Or, depending on your framing, Atlanta’s historic loss.

Reminding losing sports teams of their blown leads has become somewhat of a meme lately (in case you missed it, Golden State Warriors Day was March 1).

Anyway, Twitter users won’t be letting Falcons fans forget their 25-point third quarter lead in the Super Bowl anytime soon, and piled on Tuesday. Relentlessly so.

You get the idea.
