The Patriots will be feeling pretty crappy about losing the Super Bowl to the Giants, but the country of Aruba wants to help them recover. The Aruba Tourism Authority is offering the Pats an all-expense paid trip to the island as a consolation prize for losing the big game.
“We want to acknowledge and celebrate the hard work, dedication and season-long success of the team, despite their loss,” said Ronella Tjin Asjoe, CEO, Aruba Tourism Authority. “We believe there is no better place to recover after a loss than Aruba. After all, we are known as ‘One Happy Island’.”
The Super Bowl MVP gets to go to Disney World, the losing team goes to Aruba? I’d say that’s a fair trade-off.
Guys who just lost the Super Bowl probably don’t want to give themselves a reward by going on vacation, but at least they won’t have to open their wallets for this one. The best part is they’ll be able to see their Super Bowl champion gear up close if they do go.
