Hear me out…
If you’ve never seen any of the Ocean’s movies… Stop reading this, go watch them, and then get back to this post ASAP.
Bill Belichick is Danny Ocean and I cannot believe it’s taken me this long to realize it.
Let’s run through the checklist, shall we?
Sure, Bill looks like a homeless guy when he’s on the field with his sweatpants tucked into his socks sometimes. You ever see Danny Ocean’s disguise in Ocean’s 13 when they’re staking out Bank’s casino? Doesn’t take away that these two are styling and wildin’
Never too high, never too low. That’s the name of the game with these two. Danny always has his composure and the same goes for Bill. No heist or game is too big of a stage for these two.
If something goes off the rails and everyone else is running for the hills… These two are laughing in the face of something that tried to get in their way while plotting the next move.
These two understand the value of a good crew and they know exactly the right people for the right job. You think ANYONE would hire Livingston Dell to do ANYTHING?
Danny Ocean would. That’s why Livingston gets the job and hacks the shuffle machines for Blackjack in Ocean’s 13… Bill finds people like Julian Edelman who people wouldn’t draft as a quarterback. Neither would Bill, so he made him into the best slot receiver in football.
They understand the value of a diamond in the rough.
You Think You’ve Beat Them, But You Never Came Close.
This is the cherry on top.
EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
You think you have Danny Ocean and the boys popped for grand larceny and they’re all about to do 2 life sentences in the clink… LOL nope.
Oh you’re the Jacksonville Jaguars and you did almost everything right and you thought you were going to the Super Bowl? Guess again, Watson.
These two play chess, and you play checkers. Just when you think you’ve developed the perfect game plan against Bill, or you hired the best people to take down Danny Ocean… They walk right past you with a smile on their face with the score in their hands.
It’s crazy I didn’t see it before, but glad I arrived here in the end.
PS – Brady has to be Rusty (Brad Pitt), right? I guess he just has to be. Striking good looks, and suave under pressure.
PPS – Ernie Adams is 500000% Linus (Matt Damon)
