Last week, one of the Pro Football Talk on NBCSN analysts suggested that David Letterman should top a list of the top 10 things that can be done in 90 seconds or less in a bathroom. Next week, Patriots coach Bill Belichick could read that list in person on the air.
CBS has announced that Belichick will appear February 11 on The Late Show with David Letterman, only the second time Belichick ever has been a guest on the show.
The Patriots became a pin cushion in recent weeks for the #DeflateGate investigation, which arose during the AFC championship game between the Patriots and the Colts, the favorite NFL team of the Indiana native who hosts the show. It’s hard to imagine Letterman agreeing to steer clear of the hottest topic involving the head coach of the Super Bowl XLIX championship team.
It’s even harder to imagine Belichick appearing to agree on the show, especially if he still hasn’t been interviewed by the NFL in connection with the ongoing investigation.
If Letterman manages to coax some news out of Belichick, it won’t be the first time Letterman’s show has moved the football needle. In 2008, Brett Favre strongly hinted during his first retirement that, come July, he possibly would decide to play again. And he did.
