The New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints held a joint practice yesterday in preparation for Thursday’s preseason game, and received a visit from a special guest.
Jon Bon Jovi, a good friend of Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and lead singer of the aptly titled band ‘Bon Jovi,’ made an appearance and chatted with Belichick and Saints head coach Sean Payton.
No, your eyes do not deceive you. That is a smile on the face of Bill Belichick, which is to my knowledge the first piece of photographic evidence revealing the Patriots head coach does feel emotion.
According to Payton, it was during a Bon Jovi concert in Dallas that Saints GM Mickey Loomis called and offered him the Saints head coaching job, which he promptly accepted.
