DATELINE: Off They Go into the Wild Blue Yonder
The New England Patriots may look like they are a tank job, but they are soon to be privately airborne.
Yes, the Trump jet has nothing on the AirKraft, owned by Patriot billionaire Robert Kraft who surely took his ideas from flying on Air Force One with President Trump.
The Patriots will take their first road trip in the newest former American Airlines superjet, now fitted to accommodate wide seat players with more leg room and wider seats than you have in normal first-class.
Never mind that the Pats are beginning to look like a bad coach’s idea of a team.
The new Pat jet has enough room for all players, coaches, and hangers-on. There is a lounge area, and even a bedroom for the president: we mean President Kraft as they wend their way to Tampa to play on Thursday.
The jet took out 250 seats and made more luxurious rows for the backfield.
Customized and rebuilt, the new Patriot transportation is better than their defensive unit, that will fly in the tail end, and soon on the wing, according to Bill Belichick, unless they improve.
Tom Brady has a special spot to allow him the space for his retinue (that’s a posse for a near billionaire GOAT).
We await the news on which players will be allowed to sit next to Tom; it’s already a dogfight on the bench at Gillette.
No, we have not heard whether the media will be given accommodations in the cargo hold with the dirty uniforms.
