No, it’s not because of the newly-released Star Wars trailer.

It’s because William Stephen Belichick celebrated his 63rd birthday on Thursday. He of the six Super Bowl rings (four of them coming as the HC of the NEP) received several birthday greetings on Thursday. Perhaps, no greeting was greater than Chya Mayo’s dancing birthday video.
Channeling 50 Cent, the daughter of Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo wished Coach Belichick a happy birthday. She also wished he would get lots of stuffed animals.
This was brilliant. Can you imagine Belichick with a Teddy Ruxpin or a Care Bear? It would be simply fantastic.
In fact, can we get this done by the Belichick retirement ceremony in 2020?
