Have you ever wondered how Super Bowl Champs saying "I'm going to Disney World" started? Well I have and so I decided to look it up. I found out that the first person to say it was Jeana Yeager. She piloted the first aircraft to go around the world without refueling. She was having lunch with Michael Eisner and his wife at the Star Tours Grand Opening Ceremony in January of 1987. Eisner's wife asked her what she was going to do next and she responded with "We're going to Disneyland." By the end of the month Disney had Phil Simms, QB of the New York Giants record the statement "I'm going to Disney World" on the football field right after they had won the game. Here is the link if you want to watch it http://tinyurl.com/66pblhm This is a googled pic of Joe Flacco, QB of the Baltimore Ravens. He is the latest NFL player to do this.

I truly hate this photo. (No disrespect Sandcar 😁) - Slotherini  1079.8 #169 5:52PM
No worries. I am not a Ravens fan. I wanted the Niners to win. - Sandcar13  1408.2 #122 5:54PM
That should've been Kaepernick :( - FrankenweenieVelinee  3010.3 #44 6:25PM
Agreed! Wish it was Kaepernick sitting her. 😒 - LaPearleNoir  1789.4 #94 9:23PM

I remember when Orel Hershiser said it at the end of the 1988 World Series - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 5:51PM
Orel was the second MLB player to do it. Frank Viola of the Twins did it first in 1987. - Sandcar13  1408.2 #122 5:55PM
I hope he falls out...not Mickey of course. - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 6:27PM

I agree Donnie!! - MinnieMousewife  914.1 #201 8:47PM
Oh cool! Thank you for sharing this! - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 5:35PM
Very informative, thanks - ChristopherRobin661  274.0 #1125 5:38PM
They also pick a few players ahead of time and notify them that they're going to say it (a couple from each team). They also get a big sum of money too - BaseballMickey_CM  7560.9 #11 5:50PM
Simms got something like $75,000. I think players now get $30,000 for doing it now. - Sandcar13  1408.2 #122 5:57PM
Grrrr. That should be Anquan Boldin or Jacoby Jones since they're the ones who scored the TDs. - KermitFan13  653.7 #306 6:55PM
Thanks for the info! We were talking about this and were wondering how it works. - MinnieMousewife  914.1 #201 8:45PM
You're welcome. - Sandcar13  1408.2 #122 9:16PM
At least he said, "I'm going to Disneyland"πŸ˜’ - TinkerSchelle  1981.1 #81 10:58PM
