Bill Belichick does voice over for World Series lead-in

FOX will open tonight’s broadcast of the World Series with a video titled, “How do you make history?” None other than Patriots coach Bill Belichick provided the voice over.

Yes, Bill Belichick.

“It was awesome,” Belichick said, via Mike Reiss of ESPN. “I was honored they asked me to do it. I don’t really have much of a baseball background, but the World Series is one of the great sporting events in this country, has great tradition to it, especially with these two franchises. Very humbled.”

The Red Sox, of course, play the Dodgers in Game One tonight.

  1. Bill loves history. This one comes down to character and charm versus concrete and lunacy. Beat LA! Then wash, rinse, and repeat in the Super Bowl! Go Sox! Go Pats!

  2. The uninformed football fans who are constantly bashing baseball could learn something from Mr. Belichick. Of course, those people are not well versed in history or tradition so the Coach’s words are probably lost on them.

  3. .
    Belichick is close with Red Sox VP Tony LaRussa. There’s a good chance he was involved in recruiting him.

    So they asked the guy with the most monotone, unexcited voice in sports to do a voiceover.


    No, they asked the greatest coach in all of sports to do a voiceover.

    “The team that plays the best in all phases of the game will win the series.”


    That’s funny

  6. “So they asked the guy with the most monotone, unexcited voice in sports to do a voiceover.”

    No he uses that voice when he’s asked the usual stupid questions the media know he won’t answer. If you’ve ever heard him when he’s asked a question about NFL history for example, his personality and voice change substantially.

  7. The best lead in of all time has to be John Malkovich’s opening for this past Super bowl. That was amazing. I was ready to run through a wall.

    I hope he didn’t use that deadpan voice he uses in press conferences.


    I’ll bet he doesn’t. I watched a history documentary that he narrated and he was pretty good. He just uses that monotone to discourage the press.

  9. The uninformed masses complaining about Belichick’s monotone tendency in press conferences clearly don’t know he’s also done narration work for a WWII documentary for PBS.

    The only question is how many Emmy awards is he going to take home?

  10. Baseball is so boring.

    Most of the time, here’s what happens in a typical baseball game: The pitcher scratches his genitals, or lifts his pants, or adjusts his hat, or shrugs his shoulder, or shakes his head at the catcher, or digs a hole in the dirt, or goes through any number of inane and tiresome pre-pitch rituals. The catcher squats behind the plate giving hand signals from his crotch. The batter meanders around home plate, or, if he actually stays put, he spends most of his time waving the bat around or kicking his own hole in the dirt. The in- and out-fielders just stand there, looking around, waiting for something to happen. The dugouts are full of players and coaches with their eyes glazed-over from the boredom, eating sunflower seeds, or chewing tobacco, or spitting, or talking about the stock market or anything but baseball. And, then, when the pitcher gets around to winding-up to deliver a pitch (finally!), the batter raises his hand, steps out of the box, adjusts his gloves and helmet, and the whole dreary cycle begins anew.

    That’s why there’s so much emphasis on baseball statistics — to distract the fans from the ho-hum events on the field. One baseball fan might ask another: “Which switch-hitter had the most doubles in August during a strike-shortened season while replacing the regular third baseman when hitting left-handed in night games?” I have a better, and more important, question: “Who cares?”

    Baseball is so boring. tl;dr accurate description of baseball.


    This is one of those comments I both agree with and disagree with. I totally agree with your representation and assessment of baseball. However there are other people in the world, and we don’t all like the same activities.

    So I guess to answer your specific question, other people who aren’t y..oh wait I just realized it was a rhetorical question. Sorry.

  12. I know that all of the east coast liberal elites are rooting for Boston. However, I support the Los Angeles Dodgers and their tradition of upholding America’s values.
