Hatin' the Patriots: Bill Belichick is Probably the Grumpiest Neighbor Ever
Our closest exposure to Bill Belichick is what we see and hear from him behind a podium speaking in front of a swarm of lights, cameras, and story-hungry media members. We see that he's not smooth like Jon Gruden, not likable like Tony Dungy, not even an entertaining grouch like Bill Parcells.
Belichick might be a terrible person -- perhaps worse than what people imagine. He might also be wonderful, caring, empathetic, and altruistic.
I have no idea. I've never met the guy. I'm guessing neither have you.
It would be nice if Belichick looked a man in the eye when he shook his hand. It would be nice if his players could celebrate without mocking their opponents or spike a ball somewhere other than a team's insignia. If you have to loathe a man for one reason or another, harping on his classlessness is borderline defensible.
But if you hate rude people with no sense of decorum, I don't know how you get up in the morning and face the world in 2008 every day.
Judgment: You are a Charmingly Outdated Patriots Hater.
Good luck on keeping your blood pressure down.
