Even in paradise, Belichick needs his hoodie

KAPOLEI, Hawaii — Bill Belichick cracks me up. Not in the way a comedian cracks me up, but because the guy is so … so … quirky when it comes to his hoodie.

I’m just trying to understand how the Patriots’ coach has continued to wear a fleece here all week in flawless weather conditions. It’s hilarious. And it makes zero sense.

I guess it doesn’t have to when it comes to Belichick. The guy is one of only four coaches in NFL history with at least three Super Bowl wins, so whatever makes him happy, I guess. But is it really necessary to rip off the sleeves and hood just for the sake of wearing the hoodie?

It reached a whole new level on Friday, which was picture day for both the AFC and NFC teams. That meant the players and coaches wore their game-day attire, and for Belichick that meant a nice, loose, comfortable-looking linen shirt. The moment the photo shoot ended, though, that thing came right off. It was back to looking like … Belichick. Oh yeah, and the hoodie was inside-out, too.

Funny guy that Belichick is.
