Bill Belichick showed some style sense on Monday, arriving with the New England Patriots in Minneapolis wearing a black fedora.

It’s certainly a switch for most of us who are used to seeing the coach wearing his signature cut-off hoodie. But perhaps this was as intentional as everything else the coach does.
Bill Belichick arrives at Super Bowl LII wearing a fedora, which might be a tribute to one of his coaching idols, Paul Brown. He did that prior to a 2010 game when he pulled into a tie with Brown for 12th on the all-time wins list. (Screen shot by @JoeGiza). pic.twitter.com/KpsYwcWDu9

Not surprisingly, Twitter had some pretty priceless reactions to Belichick wearing this fedora.

Someone should probably start a Twitter profile for "Bill Belichick's Hat" pic.twitter.com/AAsgGBkyoU

Belichick's wearing a fedora. On second thought, don't bother holding me back. This could be a damn blowout.

Clearly, the fedora is inspiring Patriots Nation.
The same cannot be said for the way Vegas is seeing this play out, however, as much of the money is actually going to the underdog Eagles. It’s going to be a fascinating game, and we cannot wait to see what happens this upcoming Sunday.
