Bill Belichick is programmed for only a few things, coaching football, evaluating talent and mentoring Tom Brady. These things actually may stem from his secret origin as a sparring partner for Naval Academy midshipmen woefully unprepared to face the Viet Cong at the time. Turns out Robot Bill has other functions; lovin' is among them.
How do we know that there is a real human side to Bill Belichick? His girlfriend told us, by using her Twitter account to answer fan questions on behalf of the coach.
A sampling of Bill's tender side ...
He listens to what the kids are listening to.
He might be sucking up for a job at the NFL Network someday. Also, he's always had an Achilles heel when it comes to spotting receiving talent.
Brown, but only because former Yugoslavian dictator Josip Tito never coached football.

He threw in a male grooming tip for the stylish fans too.
