South Park Takes on SpyGate
We’re conflicted here. On the one hand, people really gotta let Spygate go. The Pats lost, and the NFL hasn’t ruled on any impropriety. On the other hand, it’s been fun to follow the trail of vitriol the rest of the media spills. Bill Belichick checking out a college student, or the debate over whether or not Tom Brady is whipped by his hot supermodel girlfriend—both fine topics.
But nothing compares to South Park. Clips from an episode rip apart the methods of the Patriots coach. Yeah, it’s cruel, and we’re getting fed up with the jokes, but the treatment is kind of funny, too.
“This is Bill Beeeelichick,” Cartman says, holding up a picture of the coach in his infamous red hoodie. “He’s won three Super Bowls. How? He cheated. He even got caught cheating, and nobody cared.”
“Just before the last Super Bowl, Bill Belichick gathered his football players and said ‘Let’s win this one for real, just this one time. Let’s not cheat.’ You know what happened? They lost.”
