Bill Belichick: 'I don't do Twitter, My Face'

Things figure to get a little testier between Bill Belichick and the media as the season progresses, but the guy, for him, was a cross between Shecky Greene and Socrates today in Foxborough, Mass.

Ahead of the New England Patriots' season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals, he was asked about his relationship with wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, someone he'd watched work out before the 2001 draft.

"It's an odd couple," Belichick said, causing reporters to laugh. "But in the end, I think we have a lot of things in common. I like Chad. I like him as a player, I like him as a person. I like his enthusiasm and the fun he has in football, and how he competes on the football field."

Ochocinco has tried to pick a Twitter trash-talk fight with Patriots players (no luck) and Belichick was asked if he follows Ochocinco on Twitter.

"I don't do Twitter, My Face, or any of that stuff," Belichick said.

"I don't do Twitter, My Face, or any of that stuff," Belichick said.

It's ok, Bill. We're old school dudes. I didn't join the My-You-Book-Face until a year ago, and I just joined the Tweety thing yesterday!
