If you noticed the web slowing down last week, you're not alone. Last Wednesday, March 27, Hall of Fame basketball coach Phil Jackson's presence was announced on Twitter [https://twitter.com/PhilJackson11] for the first time ... and he broke the Internet. He's since racked up an earth-shattering 195,000 followers in a matter of days, and it's all because of that unique first tweet:

Phil nailed twitter on his first try. What's he going to do for an encore? How about another digital first?
AOL.com is proud to announce that on Saturday, April 6th starting at 5:00 PM EST and Monday, April 8th starting an hour before tip-off, Phil Jackson will be coming exclusively to our site to live blog the Final Four and NCAA Championship games. (Oh, and he's going to bring a guest with him, too. Joining Phil for those two nights will be ESPN analyst Kurt Rambis – an NBA champion and Lakers legend in his own right.)
Why Phil? Let's just let the resume speak for itself, shall we?
Working hand-in-hand with our editors, Phil and Kurt will kick off the live blog at 5:00 PM EST, Saturday night on AOL.com and will pick it up again Monday night. Throughout that time, they will be answering fans' questions and giving insights into the games.
So before you come back to AOL.com for tip-off, make sure to follow Phil on Twitter [https://twitter.com/PhilJackson11] and get in a quick meditation session. While you're there, go ahead and follow Kurt too [https://twitter.com/KRambis] ... it's gonna be an epic two nights.
