Your secret is safe with me: Bill Belichick

Dear Bill Belichick,

You’re crafty. Not for the obvious reasons involving stealing signals from opposing NFL teams, but mainly because you successfully hide who you really are. Like Spiderman, minus the tights.

Sometimes you seem to get upset with reporters for asking legitimate questions. How dare they ask questions about decisions you made during the course of a game. You are Bill Belichick, the football genius! You wear a hooded sweatshirt! You demand respect!

You’re not as tough as you pretend to be though. Sometimes when you’re intimidating reporters or eating thumb tacks, I bet you’re really thinking about puppies-- happy, fluffy puppies. I bet you’re secretly ticklish too.

So, despite the way you treat the media, opposing coaches and probably crossing guards and librarians. Despite the frowns, growls and snarls, I know that you’re really a teddy bear in wolves' (hooded) clothing. But don’t worry, your secret is safe with me.
