The New England Patriots are a no-nonsense type of team. That starts with their head coach Bill Belichick. But that doesn’t mean they don’t like to joke around and have a little fun too. So when the Boston Red Sox rolled into Gillette Stadium this past Sunday to be honored for winning the World Series, Belichick and company couldn’t help but laugh at them. The reason why? They view the players as ‘little’.
Check out this mic’d up clip from the Patriots’ game this past Sunday:
As you can see and hear, Belichick, Tom Brady and Josh McDaniels all made wisecracks at the Red Sox expense. I found their remarks to be pretty funny. I never really put much thought into the size difference between football and baseball players, but when you think about it, football players have to be a lot larger on average. Of course, there are always exceptions. In this case, David Ortiz would be that exception. At 6-4, 250 lbs, he’s no small man.
As far as the Boston sports scene is concerned, things are looking pretty good for the Pats and Bruins. But the Celtics, not so much. With first year head coach Brad Stevens at the helm and Rajon Rondo still on the sidelines, the Celtics are 1-4. The Patriots figure to be the area’s best chance at a winner in the foreseeable future. But even if they don’t come through in the playoffs, there’s no doubt that Boston sports teams have been on a tear over the last few years.
