New England Patriots coach Bill Bellichick might not be the most popular man in the National Football League, but the T-shirt he was photographed wearing before Sunday’s Super Bowl game went a long way toward putting him in a good light for some conservatives.
Bellichick wasn’t wearing the Gadsden flag, but the “Don’t Tread on Me” motto on his red, white and blue shirt became a Twitter topic. Some people who weren’t fans of Bellichick before got on the bandwagon …

… While took the chance to make fun of Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and his 9/11 “truther” reputation.
@teaparty321 Seahawks coach was probably wearing his 911 truther shirt. Glad he lost.

And some people just took the chance to show off.
Weird how Belichick is wearing a “Don’t Tread On Me” shirt, given that he was the guy who shot Crispus Attucks

If you’re talking about Crispus Attucks at a Super Bowl party, you’re probably in the tea party, too.
