When it comes to getting ready for Super Bowl LI, it’s all about the railroads
When it came to getting prepared for Super Saturday, it was all about getting on the rail and heading to the beach for a little bit.
The Patriots and the New Orleans Saints are the only two teams with rail ties.
But that didn’t stop the Patriots from making a trip to the island of Ellis in the Bahamas.
For the first time since Super Bowl XXVI, New England will have to get off the island before the Super Bowl, as it’ll be in the middle of the game.
The Patriots played in Super Bowl XXXVI in Honolulu, Hawaii, but were unable to make it to the game because of a series of hurricanes.
But the Patriots will be on the island, and there will be plenty of rail transportation available to get them to the stadium.
For the Patriots, it’ll mean a trip down to the Bahamas and back again.
They’ll be on an island where the sea is almost 1,000 feet higher than the air, and where the sun rises in the mornings, and sets in the evenings.
That’s one of the perks of being a team that has an international presence.
It also means they’ll be able to have a great view of the ocean.
“That’s one reason why we’re going there,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said.
“The island is the perfect setting to get the most of the sun and the best of the views.
That was one of our goals.”
The Patriots are playing the Saints on the final Sunday of the regular season in Superdome.
The game is expected to be the first in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.
The team will also be traveling to Hawaii for a few days before the game in Honolulu.
The trip is part of a long-term plan by the Patriots to bring rail service to the city and its environs, something that started a couple of years ago with a two-day rail trip in the winter.
That plan will be extended this year with another two days of rail travel.
That means New England is expecting to be in town during Super Bowl XLVI.
