Joe Flacco Visits Disney World

Posted Feb 4, 2013

Joe Flacco's becoming more of a celebrity after being named Super Bowl MVP.


Joe Flacco, you and the Baltimore Ravens just won the Super Bowl! What are you going to do next?

“I’m going to Disney Land!”

Well, actually Flacco went to Disney World in Orlando, Fla., but close enough.

It’s the classic line for a Super Bowl MVP. And Flacco made it come true Monday just hours after hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.

Flacco rode through the Disney World parade right next to Mickey Mouse, waving and pointing to screaming fans.

Now that he’s the Super Bowl MVP, the player described as “dull” by his own father will see his celebrity status explode.

Flacco met Jay Z and Beyonce at the Ravens’ postgame Super Bowl party, which he described as “pretty cool.” He’s going to be on The David Letterman show tonight. The nation will get a taste of the unique personality Baltimore fans has seen over the years.

Flacco was asked for his thoughts on becoming a celebrity on Monday.

“Hey, if you say there’s going to be some kind of celebrity with it, I’m cool with that,” he said. “But I don’t know if I’ll ever be comfortable with it. I kind of like to go about my business.”

At the end of the day, Flacco is still just a normal guy. For example, he went into the French Quarter and visited famous restaurant Café Du Monde with his wife the day before playing in the Super Bowl.

What other quarterback starting in the NFL would be strolling around town the night before the game?

“I didn’t want to just stay pent up in the hotel, basically,” Flacco said. “I really just wanted to try those beignets, or however you say it, which were unbelievable by the way.”
