At one point in time, I was living on Nantucket. Every year, the the Nantucket Iron Teams Relay (formerly the Nantucket Iron Man) is held in June. It is primarily a team event with six legs: a 2.5 mile run, a mile paddle, a 3.5 mile run on the beach with a 20 lb pack on your back, a 1/2 mile swim, a 19 mile bike ride and a 6 mile run. The year I did it solo, Belichick did too. Wow, I thought, I respect this man. He makes his team work really hard, but he works hard too. I was so starry eyed that I was too shy to introduce myself. It is one of my greatest regrets.
And yes, he was wearing a cut off sweatshirt. (no logo though)
This weekend, the Patriots are squaring off against the Denver Broncos for the AFC championship, and they are the 6 point underdogs. A lot is being said about the rivalry between the two quarterbacks, but to me, this game is about Belichick and his football artistry.
I can't wait to see what he has up his sweatshirt sleeve.
