Bill Belichick is often viewed as a “Robo coach” who displays very few feelings and emotions, but we’re learning that’s not who he really is. The Patriots coach actually showed some compassion during one of the team’s recent practices.
According to the Boston Globe, tight end Aaron Hernandez hurt his elbow during Wednesday’s practice and Bill Belichick went to kiss the boo-boo (see the photo here).
“I had a little bruise on my elbow and I was whining about it, and he was just showing me the love of a father figure and he gave me a kiss on the elbow,” Hernandez said after practice on Friday, according to the Globe.
Hernandez didn’t ask Belichick to kiss it but …
“I damn sure liked it though. Felt some love,” said Hernandez.
It’s getting mushy at Pats practice, enough to make me cry.
