Bill Belichick knows that although the Patriots are the home team next weekend they're hardly the hometown favorite. At today's presser he decided to make the locals smile a bit by poking fun at his decision to go for it on 4th and 2 in the 2007 AFC Championship:
“I never had too much hospitality here until I went for it on fourth-and-2,” Belichick said. “Since then I’ve been greeted in a lot more friendly manner than I was in the past.”
Belichick smiled, joked around and generally seemed chipper at his press conference on Sunday evening. Getting to the Super Bowl has him in a good mood.
