And so it begins.
Training camp, sure...but in this case, I'm talking about Bill Belichick and his absolute favorite thing in the world: interacting with the media.
During a press conference, someone (note to everyone: it WAS NOT Albert Breer) asked Belichick if there was any chance that Garoppolo would be the starter in Week 5. Let's all check out his response:
To answer everyone's question, no, it wasn't me. pic.twitter.com/KEG6rVtA9R— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) July 29, 2016
This isn't the first time that Billy B has had a hilarious reaction to a ridiculous question surrounding his quarterback, and it certainly won't be the last. I personally can't get enough of moments like this and had forgotten how much I missed them.
I can't help but wonder, if you have the unenviable task of trying to elicit a response from Belichick, how much you even bother looking for an actual answer versus lobbing up awful questions like that one just to get something - anything - you can use. I'm just glad I write for Pats Pulpit and not some other periodical where my job depends on whether or not people are clicking on my stuff. It allows me to laugh at responses like this as opposed to worry that Bill Belichick is indirectly going to cost me my job when he doesn't say anything for 20 minutes and thus forces me to churn out yet another fluff piece about Deflategate.
We all love you, Bill.
P.S. If you didn't laugh out loud at the picture of Belichick accompanying this article, we can't be friends anymore.
