The Gainesville Sun reports that Delta bumped all of the passengers off a flight from Gainesville to Atlanta to allow a University of Florida basketball team to fly on the plane instead. Reportedly the passengers noticed something was up when their flight was cancelled and a bunch of basketball players were headed to the plane they thought they were supposed to board.
3 Worse Things Then Getting Bumped From Your Plane For A College Basketball Team
1. Getting bumped from your plane for a college basketball team that traveled to a game that they lost. Oh wait, that actually happened. Well it would be worse if you bet a free airline-compensation-for-getting-bumped-voucher on the team that scored your seats and they lost!
2. Having a basketball team safely orchestrate an emergency landing on your deserted island, and then not get rescued. That happened in like five episodes of Gillian’s Island, right? If there’s two things you can count on the Harlem Globetrotters to do is: beat the Washington Generals and never rescue anyone on Gilligan’s Island!
3. Hiding on a deserted island because you are a member of the hapless Washington Generals, and tired of the humiliation of losing almost every game in history. And then the Harlem Globetrotters have a safe emergency landing on your island, and beat your team 124-2, and then don’t even rescue you when they leave!
