Bill Belichick, the renowned coach of the New England Patriots, is not known for sharing much about his life outside of football. However, he recently revealed a surprising interest during an appearance on The Greg Hill Show on WEEI in Boston. Belichick attended Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour concert at Gillette Stadium and was highly impressed by the pop star’s performance, particularly her resilience in performing through heavy rain.
Belichick praised Swift’s toughness, stating, “That was pretty impressive. She’s tough, man. Stood out there and played right through it.” When asked if he was officially a fan of Swift, or a ‘Swiftie’, Belichick seemed unsure of what the term meant. He did reveal that his favorite Taylor Swift song is “You Need To Calm Down,” a message he resonates with.
Belichick’s admiration for Swift’s performance in the rain aligns with his reputation for valuing toughness in sports. It wouldn’t be surprising if he used Swift’s rain-soaked concert as an example to motivate his team during adverse weather conditions. There are also hopes that Belichick might one day sport a Taylor Swift Eras Tour sweatshirt on the sideline, officially declaring his status as a ‘Swiftie’.
