A headline from a newspaper in Canada about the coronavirus is laugh-out-loud funny.
In a tweet posted by Chase Mitchell, the front page headline Saturday for the Toronto Star reads, “The ‘Gretzky’ Of Viruses.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I don’t know why, but I absolutely love this. I absolutely love this headline. The Wayne Gretzky of viruses.
If there was ever a way for people in Canada to take this situation seriously, comparing it to the greatest hockey player ever is a great start.
We should start doing this here in America. We need to start tying viruses and pandemics to famous athletes when they’re really bad.
Maybe, if it’s a common cold, we just refer to it as a journeyman quarterback. It’s the Ryan Fitzpatrick of flu season. It’s there, but nobody is too worried.
Either way, this is one of the best headlines I’ve seen in a very long time, and I have no choice but to take the coronavirus super seriously if it’s compared to Wayne Gretzky.
