The Day after the Big Game, Team Can Recoup on One Happy Island

NEW YORK, Feb. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- They may not have won the biggest football game of the year, but New England players can still find something to smile about this week on one happy island. 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'."

Just a convenient flight from the East Coast, New England players who accept the offer can have their tired feet in the warm Aruban sand as early as Monday afternoon. With an idyllic setting and temperatures in the low 80s, Aruba is the perfect place to rest and recover.
