Patriots Coach Bill Belichick Hung Out with Kid Rock in Florida

At Tiger Woods' restaurant.

Bill Belichick was spotted hanging out with an unlikely pal during the Patriots head coach’s trip to Florida.

According to an Instagram photo posted by Belichick’s girlfriend Linda Holliday, the couple spent some time with Robert James Ritchie—better known as musician Kid Rock—at Tiger Woods’ restaurant in Jupiter.

Two of these people have lived in Detroit! Hint : I'm not one of them!

Boston Globe sports writer Ben Volin reported on Twitter that Belichick thinks of the rapper-rocker as a “great guy.”

While Belichick and Kid Rock seem like strange bedfellows, they do have one thing in common: they both “dig” Donald Trump.

The Patriots head coach and his girlfriend recently had dinner with the Republican presidential hopeful at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach.

Meanwhile, Kid Rock explained to Rolling Stone in February why he’s backing Trump’s campaign.

“I’m digging Trump,” Kid Rock said. “My feeling: let the motherf–king business guy run it like a f–king business. And his campaign has been entertaining as s–t.”

If Trump and Kid Rock are the kind of people Belichick hangs out with when he goes to Florida, maybe it’s time to ship back up to Foxboro.
