Devils catch ride on U2's Plane

The Devils are apparently ready to reach rock star status.

Word is that the team will be using the Irish rock band U2’s plane on their next three road trips.

Of course, the Devils have traveled first class on chartered jets for years. But using the plane in which Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen travel will be tickle some of the team’s rock fans.

“Pretty cool,” defenseman Paul Martin said. “Some guys are pretty pumped up. I actually got to see them when they were here. That was the first time I’d seen them. I’m not a huge fan of their music, but the live show is one of the best I’ve ever seen.”

Seating on the plane could be a problem.

“Who gets Bono’s seat?” Jay Pandolfo asked. “I’m going to see if I can pull that off.”

They’ll get to experience a little of the rock star life.

“At least we can pretend,” Martin said.
