JetBlue Airways won’t let old Super Bowl ghosts rest.
The airline company trolled the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday night with a clever tweet that hearkened back to the team’s 34-28 loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI. The Patriots trailed Atlanta 28-3 midway through the third quarter before mounting the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history and ultimately winning the game in overtime.
Here’s what JetBlue had to say Sunday night after the Patriots beat the Kansas City Chiefs 37-31 in overtime to win the AFC Championship Game and clinch a berth in Super Bowl LIII, which will take place Feb. 3 in, you guessed it, Atlanta at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The 28-3 score has been a running joke in the sports world for nearly two years, and JetBlue simply is joining the party with its tweet. JetBlue’s antics might ensure most Atlanta residents support the Los Angeles Rams over the Patriots in the big game, but we all know how effective Atlanta’s backing will be once the game kicks off.
