Bill Belichick Supports St. Louis Cardinals Baseball

After the St. Louis Cardinals salted away Game 6 of the World Series on Thursday night, Bill Belichick did what any good friend would; he showed support for his buddy Tony LaRussa.

Belichick wore his LaRussa again on Friday prior to St. Louis defeating the Texas Rangers in Game 7 to claim the World Series.

While speaking to the media on Friday, Belichick discussed his enthusiasm for St. Louis’ spectacular effort during their astonishing Game 6 victory:

What a game, what a game. It’s just, [the Cardinals were] behind five times, whatever it was, scored in the last however many, seventh, eighth, ninth, 10th, 11th [innings]? Happy for Tony and wishing him well [Friday in Game 7]. That team has shown a lot of resiliency and physical toughness, mental toughness from being way behind in September and in the Series in various games.

Belichick and LaRussa being friends is less shocking than the sun rising. Two of the great winners in professional sports bonding isn’t exactly shocking.

However, I’d like to see Belichick form a bond with Charlie Manuel. I keep thinking about Game 5 when I see anything of LaRussa or the Cardinals.

Sobering.
