Hours after the official start of the NFL free-agent signing period, Bill Belichick wasn't hunkered down in his office, or staring down an agent during negotiations, or plying his football charm with a prospective Patriot. He wasn't hammering out the details of a deal with Wes Welker, either. Nope.
He was sitting home, hanging with his main squeeze, and answering questions posed to him by her Twitter followers.
Courtesy of Linda Holliday's Twitter feed, here's a look at the enlightening session, full of answers the length of which press-conference-attending Patriots reporters can particularly appreciate:
Self-deprecating humility or a glimpse into how he feels about his staff? We'll let you decide.
Now we're into the important issues -- though it's not quite a revelation. Belichick revealed a few years ago that he cut the sleeves off his sweatshirts because he has short arms; he used to just push them up.
I would've guessed Canton, Ohio, but Italy's nice, too.
And within a week of daylight savings time. This is progress.
It was indeed a great moment. And for just $165, he can remember it forever.
Surprising that a trendsetter like him isn't going to South by Southwest, really.

Who's gonna turn down a Junior Mint? It's chocolate. It's peppermint. It's delicious!
If you had a song dedicated to you by your favorite artist, it'd probably be your favorite, too.
We see the softer side of Bill.
Belichick does love himself some Tony La Russa.
And, of course, they'd both be wearing matching fedoras.
A slice of Paris in Palm Beach. Classy.
Maybe the most revealing answer of all. Deep down, it's defense over offense.
And it ends with an answer so predictable that the question didn't even need to be asked.
