Bill Belichick Hates HTTR

Hail baby, hail.

Do you like the Redskins? Are you an American? Do you consider yourself generally opposed to evil?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you likely already find yourself predisposed to be leery of Bill Belichick. But just in case you need another reason, here's a clip from his press conference yesterday, courtesy of the Hartford Courant:

One thing Belichick won't have to contend with Sunday is the "San Diego Super Chargers" fight song.

"I hate that song," Belichick said. "First time I heard that song was when I was with the Giants. We played out there, and they had [Wes] Chandler, [Chuck] Muncie, [Kellen] Winslow, [John] Jefferson, [Dan] Fouts, and it was a track meet. They didn't get through playing that song before they had scored again. And they started playing it again.

"That 'San Diego Super Chargers' ... that's still ringing in my head. I don't like to hear that song. And I don't like to hear 'Hail to the Redskins' either. When those songs play, it means it's not going good for us. That song has never been music to my ears."

Sure, it's generally bad to hear the fight song of any opposing team, but why single out HTTR? Is he making a political statement, a la Mike Wise? Is it some vestige of his Anne Arundel upbringing, some ancient Baltimore-D.C. rivalry thing? Is that why he ran the score up this year? Or is he just trying to bait Joe Gibbs, his coaching antithesis?

Either way, if you weren't already rooting for the Chargers....
