March 28 was dubbed "Falcons Day" by many people on social media and to no one's surprise, it wasn't meant as a day to celebrate impressive birds.
When written out, the date 3/28/17 acts as a "Da Vinci Code"-esque sequence of numbers that can simultaneously insult Atlanta Falcons fans and potentially reduce them to tears.
Let us explain: With 17 minutes left in Super Bowl LI, the Falcons led the New England Patriots 28-3. The team's lead would of course evaporate, resulting in one of the biggest collapses in sports history.
Cue the cruel jokes dubbing 3/28 as "Falcons Day:"
People all over Twitter wishing each other a Happy Falcons Day on this date of 3-28-17
