Thank, you @BlasianSays. His little tweetmeme has led to some pretty great Internet today. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you need to spend more time on the internet.

After ex-D.C. United and current Seattle Sounders fullback Marc Burch threw the glove down in the Seattle press during the lead-up to this weekend's Washington Derby (It's totally a thing!), one man took to the internet to fight back the best way he knew how. A hashtag. And thus was #BurchFacts born. It started innocuously enough:

Well, it didn't take long for SBN blog Sounder at Heart to catch wind of the new hashtag and for S@H writer Side Real to give his interpretation:

A set-up that B&RU reader @VercengetorixII and meme-originator @BlasianSays couldn't help but knock down...

At that point the floodgates were well and truly open. We've curated some of the best #BurchFacts below.

To be clear, this is all in good fun, and we stand with @CaptainHooligan in his well wishes for Burch.

Except for Saturday. Saturday, he sucks. #BurchFacts
