PHOTO: The First And Last Time Bill Belichick Ever Smiled

Two questions: first, in the 1960s, was everything as washed-out, speckled, and crookedly-angled as it looks in photographs? Second, has Patriots coach Bill Belichick smiled, ever?

Via SNY, we have this photo that seems to imply the former, and confirms the latter. Young William Belichick is smiling, and of course it's a sinister smile. A common comic book cliche is to shed light on a supervillain's past by drawing a family photo from the halcyon days of his youth. Good to see that Belichick isn't breaking rank.
