Bill Belichick appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and got grilled, well... lightly roasted, about Deflategate once again. And the New England Patriots coach — almost unrecognizable without his trademark hoodie and frown — had no problem playing straight man to his talk show host.
“I know you know exactly what happened. You know I know you know. And what it was was some kind of horseplay, am I right?” Letterman asked the four-time Super Bowl champion coach on Wednesday's show.
“No.” replied Belichick.
“Wait a minute I was told it was horseplay,” Letterman went on.
“Uh, no.” the coach said with a painful smile.
Letterman called the under-inflated balls controversy "nonsense" and then tried to get the coach to tell him where the allegations came from.
“Did it come from my Colts?” the Indiana native asked.
“Dave, we're just out there playing a game doing the best we can,” Belichick responded as the crowd broke out into applause.
