Walmart Mocked The Atlanta Falcons With These Perfectly Priced Coolers
With a little over two minutes remaining in the third quarter of Super Bowl LI, the Atlanta Falcons had a 28-3 lead over the New England Patriots and looked well on their way to winning the franchise’s first-ever championship. However, the Patriots had other ideas. The team managed to pull off one of the most incredible (although not the most incredible) comebacks in the history of the sport and went on to win the game in overtime after scoring 31 unanswered points.
Even if the Falcons went on to win the next five Super Bowls (which doesn’t seem very likely based on their mediocre performance so far this season), it’s likely they’ll never be able to live the loss down. After the game, the internet immediately turned “28-3” into a meme, and the Falcons have since been mocked by other teams (including the Patriots).
You’d think by this point people might be ready to move on to another joke, but it seems like making fun of the Falcons for their loss will never really get old. Someone snapped a picture of a stack of Falcon-branded coolers at Walmart, and while there’s a chance the Everyday Low Price pictured here was picked at random, something tells me that isn’t the case.
Imagine being an unsuspecting Falcons fan who was just looking to pick up a pair of reasonably priced cargo shorts and a package of tube socks only to run into this display and immediately have flashbacks to the worse loss you’ll ever experience. No one deserves that fate. No one.
