Bill Belichick Ripped in Question on Jeopardy for ‘Hissy Fit’

As previously mentioned here at LBS, Bill Belichick has quite the reputation as a poor sport. He’s made plenty of headlines for his lack of handshakes with Eric Mangini, and he even has a history of being a jerk dating back to his time in Cleveland. Even if that’s the case, I’m not sure how that gives a factually-based TV quiz show like Jeopardy the right to rip him in one of their programs. They’ve cracked on Matt Leinart before, and this time it was Belichick who was the victim:

Threw a hissy fit? I’m not so sure that’s the type of language I would have chosen. Seems to me like they’re editorializing more than giving straight facts. If they wanted to get the question across, why didn’t they ask what team lost the Super Bowl after going 16-0 in the regular season?

Jeopardy Has Fun with Matt Leinart

I didn’t really feel it was necessary to post any pictures of Matt Leinart beer bonging hot chicks in a hot tub when they first came out. For one reason, I didn’t have any context for the photos; they could have been from five years ago for all I know. Besides, can’t really get mad at a guy for hanging out in a jacuzzi with a bunch of hot co-eds, right? But I do have to say, this photo from Jeopardy is hilarious.

Not sure I would really call this a clue, but it is pretty funny. And yes, it totally humanizes Leinart.
