Shattered Illusions in the Magic Kingdom

Gasp!  Superbowl MVPs are paid to say, "I'm going to Disneyland!"

Double gasp!  The MVPs shoot two versions.  The left coast broadcast mentions Disneyland; the right coast one, Disneyworld.   (Does the European broadcast mention Eurodisneyland?)

And a sigh:  Eli Manning didn't go to Disneyland Monday -- so the victory parade went on without him (with a lot of ticked off  kids on the float that was supposed to hold Manning).  Instead Manning went to New York -- where he had to be satisfied with a ticker-tape parade down Broadway.  (Who knew that they still held ticker-tape parades?  Who knew that they still had ticker-tape?)

Except the one year that Ray Lewis was Super Bowl MVP. They wanted him to say "I'm staying far away from Disneyland" but instead they picked the quarterback who today is the fourth string quarterback on the worst team in the league.
