-- The Falcons announced on Friday the team’s offices will close until March 27th due to the coronavirus, handing Patriots fans the perfect excuse to bring up Super Bowl LI again. 

Many noticed the offices will reopen on March 28th, or 3-28, which was the score from which the Patriots came back to beat the Falcons in that Super Bowl. 

-- Tacko Fall is in the middle of his coronavirus self-quarantine, along with his Celtics teammates, and he shared some words of advice about preventing the spread of the virus on Sunday.

Fall posted a video of himself to his Twitter talking about the “team effort” it will take to stop the coronavirus spread. 

“Make sure you avoid going to crowded places,” he said. “ … If you need to stay at home, stay at home. Make sure you stay clean and, most importantly, wash your hands.” 

Very sage advice. 

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I would like to publicly apologize to the people that I may have endangered. At the time, I had no idea I was even infected. I was careless and make no excuse. I hope my story serves as a warning and causes everyone to take this seriously. I will do whatever I can to support using my experience as (a) way to educate others and prevent the spread of this virus.” -- Rudy Gobert, in an Instagram post, on his positive coronavirus test
