Bill Belichick Dressed as a Pirate Is the Happiest You’ll See Bill Belichick

It's a very Patriots Halloween.

Linda Holliday, girlfriend to Patriots coach Bill Belichick, posted photos to Instagram showing her and Bill dressed up for Halloween. What’s exciting here is not only the knowledge that Belichick would ever submit to participating in a holiday as frivolously fun as Halloween, but that he actually seems to be … enjoying himself. “Ok ok I’ll go get that beer for you!!” Holliday joked in her caption, adding “#pirateprank” and “#Halloweenfun” as well as “Love this handsome Pirate!”



Nor is it just a fluke. There’s evidence Belichick smiled at least twice while in costume.



Just for comparison, this is a face that a (presumably elated) Belichick made as he thrust a Superbowl trophy into the air in front of millions of viewers.

Meanwhile, Patriots players Aqib Talib, Brandon Spikes, and LeGarrette Blount got into the holiday spirit, too, dressed as a S.W.A.T. guy, Chuckie, and a pirate. (Suck up.)

Nor was Belichick the only guy in the organization to pose in an elaborate costume with his lady friend. Here’s Rob Ninkovich.

Gisele Bündchen posted this photo of Tom Brady posing with her to Instagram, too. “Having fun with my Lion last night!” she wrote, adding “#thewizardofoz#Dorothy #2013 #halloween #fun #love.” And you thought Linda was a little #hashtaghappy.
