Tom Brady and the New England Patriots fell short in their attempt to win the franchise’s 4th Super Bowl yesterday 21-17 despite having a 17-15 lead in the fourth quarter. Some of the blame has been directed at Brady. Wes Welker has received his share as well for his uncharacteristic dropped pass in the final period. Someone had to win the game and someone had to lose. Unfortunately for the Patriots (and their fans) they are the team leaving Indianapolis without the Lombardi trophy.
Understandably New England players are probably wondering today what could have been if this or that had gone differently. Well the generous people at the Tourism Authority of Aruba are offering a tropical setting to contemplate in, or forget about the game entirely.
The Aruba Tourism Authority is offering them the chance to touch down and score some happiness with all-expense paid trips to the tropical island known for its cheerful vibe. While only the MVP of the winning club has the opportunity to jet off to another well-known destination, Aruba is making the offer to the entire New England squad.
“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’.”
Well isn’t that nice. I wonder how many (if any at all) will take them up on the offer. Looks like as good a place as any to recover after a tough loss to me.
