Belichick jokes about 4th and 2

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 2009:

“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.

Thanks to Jacob Burch for the correction!

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
