With both clubs donning oh-so-sweet AFL throwbacks, New England and Buffalo are preparing to kick off their respective seasons in about an hour, and what better time to consider the rich, interior life of Patriots head coach Bill Belichick?  The Providence Journal’s Shalise Manza Young quizzed the grumbly MILF magnet, and here’s a few of the highlights.

My favorite television shows: From the black and white era it was The Andy Griffith Show, I Love Lucy, Perry Mason, [The ] Untouchables. After college, All in the Family, Happy Days, Seinfeld, Discovery Channel and Animal Planet ” Wild Kingdom and Big Cat Diary, Rescue Me. In sports I have to hand it to NFL Films Presents (Super Bowls XXI, XXV, XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX) and their other great shows.

The last concert I went to: I caught a few songs from Sugarland and Kenny Chesney here at (Gillette) Stadium in July. My most frequent concerts have been Bon Jovi and Springsteen.

My favorite athletes in another sport: Growing up it would have been Roger Staubach and Joe Bellino by a landslide [both played at Navy, where Steve Belichick coached for over 30 years]. And Rocky Colavito in baseball. My favorites from other sports were and will always be Bobby Orr, Bill Russell, John Havlicek and Arnold Palmer.

One place I’d like to visit that I haven’t yet: Croatia. It’s a beautiful country and that’s where my roots are. One of these days I’m going to get there.
