Falcons fans all over the U.S. are excited that their team defeated the Packers last Sunday in the NFL championship game, marking the second time in franchise history, and the first time since 1999, that Atlanta will appear in the Super Bowl.
You can guarantee team owner, Home Depot co-founder and Walt Disney look-alike, Arthur Blank, could barely restrain himself after Sunday’s game
Blank didn’t forget to bust a few moves with his players during the trophy presentation and he definitely made a buzz on Twitter.

According to complex.com, “Blank’s pure joy over his team’s triumph seems to still be in full swing as he announced on Tuesday that he would bring every team employee – I repeat, every single team employee – to Houston to witness Super Bowl 51.”
Falcons owner Arthur Blank plans to take every employee in organization to Super Bowl. We're talking hundreds.

With an astonishing net worth of $3 billion, this is no small order even for a rich guy like Blank. Complex reported that “there are approximately 270 employees in the Falcons directory, and to buy them Super Bowl tickets, fly them out to Houston, and put them up for the night costs somewhere around a milli.”
He plans to make all that back at the upcoming Super Bowl LI this February 5th when his team faces off against the New England Patriots.
