This is big news. No, I’m not joking. Actually, real, serious big news.
Patriots coach Bill Belichick won’t wear that ugly red hoodie for Super Bowl XLVI. That article of clothing that drew the ire of fans — with many believing it was the reason the 2007 dream season ended so badly — will be kept in the closet. Or burned. A repeat of Super Bowl XLII won’t happen when it comes to his attire.
Belichick’s long-time significant other, Linda Holliday, tweeted at me earlier with a message: “It’s official…no red hoodie at Superbowl XLVI!”
The response was literally astounding. My Twitter feed was flooded with celebration, which probably shouldn’t have surprised me. People hate the red hoodie. So, what will he wear? That’s not clear.
Better start the detective work.
