    Anyone see this last night? They said "Bill Belichick had some very interesting things to say today"
    Then they took a cut from his press conference, and in the corner was a countup of 'cliches'.
    Basically, every sentence, or even 2 or 3 times within a sentence, they added 1 to the count. They didn't say the question, but based on the answer it was someone asking him something like how is camp going.
    It was hilarious because he went on for a good minute or more, and every single word he said was a cliche.

    Don't blame BB one bit. I remember a few years back getting a phone call from a local business journal reporter about our new warehouse. 10 minutes into the interview, I wanted to strangle the reporter.

    I can only imagine what it takes for him to deal with those characters.

    Totally agree with you. We've had to deal with reporters over the years, and the slants and takes that they come up with will boggle the mind.

    Having said that, there is probably a kinder and gentler way, than he usually takes. :)

    But I wouldn't find it as entertaining.

    I love watching his press confrences. You can just see and hear the changes in his demeanor when he answers a good question from a good reported compared to the bad questions and bad reporters.

    Sometimes I expect him to turn into Dan Aykroyd of those original SNL skits to the reporter's Jane Curtin, spoofing 60 Minutes and responding by saying "Jane, you ignorant slut!"
