CAMP LEJEUNE, North Carolina (AP) — Fifty Marines got a special thanks for their service from the NFL’s Cleveland Browns — a free trip to Sunday’s Super Bowl.
The Browns donated 50 tickets to Sunday’s championship between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots for Marines who have served or will serve in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Some of the tickets that cost $500 and $600 each were passed out to stunned Marines on Friday at Camp Lejeune, the East Coast’s largest Marine Corps base. Tickets also were given out at Parris Island, South Carolina, Reserve Command in New Orleans and Central Command in Tampa, Florida.
The lucky Marines will sit around the 50-yard line.
I already know who won the Super Bowl: the Cleveland Browns organization!
