Tom Brady must be doing just fine, because New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was in a good enough mood on Friday to crack a smile and joke around with a reporter. When Belichick noticed during his press conference that CSNNE.com’s Tom E. Curran was sitting in the front row with golf spikes on, he couldn’t resist pointing it out.
“Going golfing today, Tom?,” Belichick asked.
Curran, who obviously has a very comfortable relationship with Belichick, explained that he actually forgot his shoes when he was leaving his house this morning so he had to wear golf spikes instead. He then criticized Belichick for what he was wearing.
“I have never seen this arrangement, by the way,” Curran shot back. “With the gingham (shirt) under the pullover.”
Curran also noted that the Patriots coach was wearing flip-flops. The reporter claimed he had to rush out of his house to figure out what was going on with the Tom Brady injury situation.
“You’re in flip flops,” Curran joked. “I have to work today. This is an oversight because I have to find out what happened to your damn quarterback so I ran out of the house.”
Despite Curran’s best efforts to turn the tables on Belichick, The Hoodie fired the last shot.
“We’re talking about your style, not mine … On your way to the golf course, you stopped by here,” he said with a big grin. “I got it.”
For what it’s worth, Brady was back at practice on Friday. Curran has no excuse to be wearing golf shoes on Saturday.
