New England is getting crushed with snow. #Patriots coach Bill Belichick has told his players… so? Get up early. Shovel. But there for outside practice. Gulp https://t.co/MTYspLR8bM

The Pats may have moved practice indoors, but there’s still no such thing as a snow day in Bill Belichick’s world. pic.twitter.com/PrhOBx4s9T

The mere fact that Bill Belichick even thought of having practice outside today is the exact reason why the Patriots dynasty has been such a force since the early 2000’s. They’re calling today’s storm a bomb-cyclone for crying out loud. I have no idea what that means exactly, but anything with the word bomb in it can’t be great. Bill Belichick was prepared to have practice in the middle of a bomb. He’s such a football guy it hurts.
Now I know he ultimately elected to move practice inside (the more logical idea), but still. Bill Belichick was totally set on having practice in the middle of a god damn blizzard. He is a maniac, and I love it.
Any sane human being would have just canceled practice for the day, especially on a bye week. But nope, not Billy B. As a wise man once said after winning his 10th Super Bowl:
Here’s Bill Belichick starting a “No Days Off” chant to a bunch of people who just took a day off.https://t.co/StAOTiDK3Epic.twitter.com/XtmZ5FeiyI

P.S., this is the same guy that was spotted wearing shorts and a t-shirt last Sunday when the temperature was literally 10 degrees during the Patriots vs. Jets game.

There was no way he was canceling. He doesn’t feel the cold.
