Via NBC Sports:
“Belichick was driven to distraction by his sleeves in the Patriots Super Bowl XXXIX win over the Eagles. Belichick was just fiddling and tugging and tucking until finally he rolled them up inside themselves. The next season, Belichick took action. In the fall of 2005, Belichick walked into the team’s equipment room, laid a gray sweatshirt on a table and he then lobbed off both arms right below the elbow.”
“My arms are too short,” Belichick reportedly told someone in the equipment room.
Everything about this is great. This is only going to add to Belichick’s legend.
