Ladies and gentlemen, I was the hottest topic on Twitter and the internet pretty much all of Sunday.

Why was I at the center of the internet world when coronavirus should have been taking the most attention? (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Well, coronavirus actually plays a role in this situation. See, following the cancelation of the conference tournaments and March Madness, I sat in stunned silence Saturday thinking about the state of society.

I was depressed, shocked, sad and in a state of disbelief that coronavirus had stolen our basketball from this. Could you imagine if a virus canceled the moon landing? Would a D-Day veteran accept this as a reason for March Madness not happening?

Well, that tweet set the internet on absolute fire. From government officials to sports figures and everyone in between, people had thoughts all over the place.

From some there, was high praise.

From others, there was a bit of shock and Chris Long even wondered whether or not was I was secretly an Axis Powers kind of guy.

Then, I looked over at the sidebar and saw that D-Day was one of the top trending topics on all of Twitter. You might think I’m kidding. I’m not.

Trust me, folks. It only gets better from there. My phone started blowing up because I was one of the main topics on the front page of Reddit!

I’m sad about March Madness too but come on from MurderedByWords

Now, I’m sure this is where most of you expect me to tuck my tail and hide in humiliation. Cleary, you don’t know anything about me or who I am.

Listen up, people. If you’re so offended by my tweet that you spent Sunday in meltdown mode, then that’s a you problem.

If you don’t find that tweet above anything other than epic, hilarious and legendary, then that’s a you problem.

If you took the time to dive into my DMs, then that’s a you problem. Obviously, some of you understood the humor better than others.

Congrats, you have a functioning brain and a high IQ. Here’s some more free advice I’ll over all of you. If you’re angry on the internet, then you’re losing.

Don’t be losing on the internet. Kick back, grab a beer, relax and recognize not having basketball sucks. If you’re busy spinning your wheels all pissed off at me, you should take a long and hard look at the state of your life.

Now, let’s get to work on winning a title next year.
