James White of the New England Patriots appearing at the Magic Kingdom today

Feb 06, 2017 in "Magic Kingdom"

Seconds after helping lead his team to a 34-28 overtime victory over Atlanta in Super Bowl 51, running back James White had another milestone moment to smile about.

He’s going to Disney World!

White, fresh from a record-setting performance in which he caught 14 passes for 110 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winning score, continues a tradition that began 30 years ago, in 1987. White is scheduled for a celebration parade Monday afternoon at the Magic Kingdom, joined by Mickey Mouse and pals on Main Street U.S.A.

The parade is expected to begin in Frontierland at around 2:25pm.

Monday marks the fourth time a member of his team participated in the Super Bowl parade at Disney, dating to 2002. No NFL team has had a player appear more than four times in the iconic parade.

Which song?

I won't argue that. TB12 was just signed an extension beyond 2019. There is still time to tie the Steelers.

But apparently extremely and clearly ignorant. I guess the world needs people like you.

Morally bankrupt? Explain. Or perhaps you're confusing the Patriots with the most overpaid man in sports, Roger Goodell. The man who looked the other way despite overwhelming evidence against Ray Rice but suspended the face of his sport four games because there was a greater than 0% chance he committed an equipment violation? Or is it simply that you're a fan of another team and can't possibly fathom that a team can have sustained success and you're predisposed to think that the only possible way is that they cheat. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to watch ESPN where I'm sure they're spending the bulk of the time talking about how the NFL overlooked the PSI issues between the Steelers and Giants because the Rooney's and the Mara's don't dictate policy for the league. Or perhaps they'll be focusing on CrowdNoiseGate... Oh wait, that's not a thing because the league and ESPN didn't make it one?

This post almost caused a vomit reflex. Congrats on your win though.

He's obviously talking about the mascot. And the Steelers still have more! :D

Some of us aren't morally bankrupt, so no, no I am not a patriots fan.

Remember when the actual Super Bowl MVP showed up for the parade? And there was the decently-cool, "I'm going to Disney World!" commercial after the game? Ahhh, those were the days...
