Bill Belichick wows another Super Bowl media audience
I attended the Patriots' interview session today to get my official Bill Belichick fix out of the way.
This is the third consecutive Super Bowl I have covered that featured Mr. Belichick and the fourth out of the last five, and I have learned once a week is enough, because all of his sessions are exactly the same.
Today's highlight, in response to a question about whether Tom Brady practiced: "He was out there along with everybody else." And how did he look? "He was out there like everybody else."
Later, a reporter made the mistake of asking Belichick about the Super Bowl's global reach: "I think you know a lot more about it than I do," he said.
Let's put it this way: I watched Tom Coughlin's introductory news conference on a monitor in the media center, and he was Chris Rock in comparison to Belichick.
