Some life changes around here

Becoming more like Bill Belichick

I was thinking the other day that my life needed a shakeup.  So after looking at several possibilities, I have decided to simplify and become more like Bill Belichick.  It’s so simple it is genius.

  • I only have to worry about the weather.  If it is cold, I wear the long sleeved hoodie.  If it is warm, I put on the same hoodie and cut off it’s sleeves.  If it gets really cold, I wear a matching undershirt and pull up the hood.  I can wear the same hoodie to work, while traveling, and I am sure he even wears it in the pool.
  • I don’t have to answer any questions directly.  If Wendy asks me why the dishes weren’t done, I reply, “I’m here to talk about Philadelphia”.  If she asks why I spent $1000 on the same grey hoodie, “I’m here to talk about Philadelphia.”
  • I wouldn’t have to have any tolerance for dumb people (I got that part down).
  • My answer to Mark’s report card, “This won’t be good enough. It wasn’t good enough today. It won’t be good enough against anybody else, either.”
  • Sometimes the most obvious answer will work out, “Any time you lose yardage in the running game, there’s a mistake somewhere.”  Or there is this, “Any time you have a negative play in the running game, it’s like getting a penalty,”
  • When I screw something up, “That’s part of the game, … Sometimes that stuff happens.”
