The city of New Orleans won’t pass up the chance to breathe new life into an ancient grudge.
The Big Easy’s Twitter account trolled the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday over its epic loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI. NFL fans know the story well: the Falcons led the Patriots 28-3 in the third quarter before New England mounted the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history to tie the game in regulation before winning it in overtime for its fifth NFL championship.
The New Orleans Saints’ home city didn’t reopen Atlanta’s old wound randomly Saturday. Instead, it chose to do so March 28, a date NFL fans have dubbed on social media “Happy 3-28 day.”
