If you were unlucky enough to see Saturday's Pro Bowl featuring nasty hits and horribly blown coverage by Sean Taylor, you may also have seen something never before caught on camera: Bill Belichick not only smiling, but actually being jovial. It was heartwarming, yet also unsettling. Like Satan petting a kitten.
But after seeing this tidbit from NFL.com (last item), it seems as though a relaxing fishing trip may have been the source of Belichick's happiness:
Few people enjoyed Pro Bowl week any more than Patriots coach Bill Belichick. On one afternoon, Belichick and his coaching staff went fishing with NFC Pro Bowl coach Sean Payton and his staff. Payton said the fishing scenes were right out of the movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
Hoo boy. Hell of a compliment, Sean. I always figured Belichick to be a Nurse Ratched type, but apparently him loosening up in Hawaii is more like Chief finally opening up. "Now we can make it, Mac; I feel big as a damn mountain… Oh no." And there's Dreamboat with lobotomy scars. And me with Gisele. Boo-yah! Sexy remakes are the best ones.
