With a new NFL season about to begin, New England Patriots fans can soon turn the page on last year’s Super Bowl loss and look forward to what lies ahead in 2018. But not before having at least one more reminder that the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl.
The Sun Chronicle reports that several Dunkin Donuts locations in Massachusetts have been serving their beverages in “Eagles World Champion” cups. Not so fun for Patriots fans.
Can you imagine if this situation was reversed and Eagles fans were being served Patriots World Champion cups? That’d be awful.
But thankfully you don’t have to worry about that because the Eagles did in fact win the Super Bowl by a final score of 41 to 33. Tom Brady dropped a pass and got strip-sacked by Brandon Graham. Nick Foles, meanwhile, caught a touchdown pass en route to becoming Super Bowl MVP.
For what it’s worth, Dunkin Donuts insists this was all simply a mistake. It wasn’t an attempt to troll Patriots fans. They released the following statement:
“We appreciate our loyal customers for bringing this to our attention, and we are taking steps to ensure all of our local stores are stocked with the correct cups. Go Pats.”
Based on our conversation with Patriots fans a few weeks ago, losing to the Eagles in the Super Bowl wasn’t the most crushing loss for them. So I doubt they’re absolutely devastated over these cups.
Still, fun to remind them who won that game on February 4.
