Tim Duncan -- recently retired San Antonio Spur, eventual Hall of Famer and eventual AARP member -- now has his own day on July 21 (a reference to the number he’s worn since college), which was announced on Monday by San Antonio mayor Ivy Taylor:
Many of the city’s inhabitants are spending Thursday celebrating Duncan in various ways. City Hall, for example, has a Tim Duncan banner up, which will apparently stay up until Sunday:
It would be nice if we dropped to 21°C (70°F) for a low today...not going to happen. Happy Tim Duncan day! pic.twitter.com/AhxJqq4mo6— Shaun Stevens (@wxstevens) July 21, 2016
The San Antonio Fire Department spelled out "Tim Duncan Day" with their bodies:
The city’s human services department had a message for Tim Duncan:
Customers will be able to reply to a Facebook post using #TimDuncanDay with a photo of themselves in Spurs gear at a Taco Cabana between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. for a chance to win one of seven $21 Taco Cabana gift cards, which will be drawn at random during the day.
... to McDonald’s:
In honor of Tim Duncan Day, greater San Antonio area McDonald’s will be selling 21-piece McNuggets boxes instead of boxes with 20 pieces. The offer will be valid from Thursday until July 31.
Here’s the decree Mayor Taylor tweeted on Thursday:
And if you love Tim Duncan, but you’re not in San Antonio, you can always post a GIF of him on the internet, like this one:
