When you talk about team loyalty, at the moment no one has more love for their organization than Arthur Blank.
Blank, co-founder of the Home Depot and owner of the Atlanta Falcons, has pledged to take the entire Falcons organization to Super Bowl LI (51) after their 44-21 demolition of the Green Bay Packers.
Blank’s love for the Falcon’s is merited, the team has only been to the Super Bowl twice in the organization’s 51-year legacy compared to the pedigree of their opponent the New England Patriots, who have secured four rings since 2001.
As reported by SB Nation, the Atlanta Falcons are a 270 person organization, meaning that Blank is planning to shell out nearly $1 million to make sure everyone who made it happen this year is in attendance.
Yet the billionaire with a love for the game doesn’t seem phased by the minor details, and it certainly doesn’t keep him from showing his love for the team in and out of the locker room.

Mind you this is only what’s been reported, we’re talking hundreds of people in this organization, from the fitness team to the water boys, and those don’t even include travel to NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
Regardless, we all know that it’s going to be a great game and it’s amazing that Blank’s contribution to an already supportive crowd down in the south will only amplify the Falcons’ play against what is the most efficient team in the league.
At the end of the day, Tom Brady stays winning life, the Patriots suck, and Arthur Blank is one of the most lit men of all time.
