Sunday Night’s football game featuring the Baltimore Ravens defeating the New England Patriots, 31-30 was surrounded in a lot of controversy and anger towards the replacement officials. The game featured 24 penalties for a total of 218 yards. Ravens coach Jim Harbaugh was penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct and Bill Belichick spent most of the game cursing at officials and will surely get fined for grabbing an official at the end of the game.
I was looking forward to Belichick’s post game press conference because you had a feeling that there could be an out-of-character explosion of epic proportions. Unfortunately, there was no outburst but I feel bad for those reporters asking Belichick questions. This press conference lasted 3 minutes and it featured a lot of groaning, eye rolling, and icy stare-downs. The tension could be cut with a knife. This is Belichick at his awkward best.
“What else would we do in that situation. Give them the ball back?”
Boom, you just got Belichicked!
