Life of the Party
The Wall Street Journal posted a ridiculous article about how Patriots coach Bill Belichick has only smiled seven times during postgame press conferences this season. I think the idea that is that Belichick is s grumpy and unhappy person — and I refuse to accept this premise. The postgame press conference isn’t Open Mic night at the Laugh Factory – it’s a time to review the game and discuss his decisions. If you want funny Belichick, watch him attempt to set the clock in his car or discuss how tiny the Red Sox players are or drop a joke about Rob Gronkowski’s health. The point is he’s funny, in his own peculiar way. As for this belief that he never smiles, I’ve put together the above gallery of a smiling Patriots coach to show that he is indeed human.

Lovely Lady Of The Day
I wanted to honor Bar Refaeli as LLOD since she landed the top slot on The RSVLT’s list of all-time hottest GoDaddy girls. But then she posted this Instagram pic of her and two guys from Jersey Shore and I thought about going in another direction. But after looking through some of her other Instagram pics, I’ve decided this is a one-time error in judgement and Bar is indeed LLOD-worthy.
