Patriots coach Bill Belichick shocked me when he embraced Giants coach Tom Coughlin for a few long seconds following his team’s Super Bowl loss. The Hoodie warmly congratulating an opponent? It was so unlike him. He must have realized how out of character that was, because he decided to make up for it by going back to being the sore loser he is.
Viewers who kept their TV on NBC after the Lombardi Trophy presentation noticed that the last thing the announcers said on the telecast was that they were waiting to conduct an interview with Bill Belichick, but he never came out for it. Right after that, NBC switched to another show.
It’s not like this was a surprise, or even that huge of a deal, but it’s something Belichick should have done. If you want the glory after winning big, you have to accept defeat when you lose. Belichick has an extremely difficult time doing that, and it’s just one more reason people dislike him.Google+
