These pictures were taken at the New England @ Seattle game in Week 6 of 2012:
Seattle head coach Pete Carroll is on the left, New England head coach Bill Belichick is on the right. The pictures evoke the old Gregg Easterbrook Cold Coach = Victory hypothesis, which states that in a game played outdoors in cold weather, the football gods shall see fit to bestow victory upon the team with the least warmly dressed head coach.
Easterbrook shouldn’t have been surprised, then, as the Seahawks defeated the Patriots 24-23. Not only does Belichick look cold, wet, and miserable, he totally looks like a Sith under that hoodie, does he not?
The corollary to Easterbrook’s Cold Coach theory is his Scantily Clad Cheerleader theory: the team whose cheerleaders are more scantily dressed, especially in cold weather, are to be granted victory. As of press time, there was no word on what outfits either team’s cheerleaders were wearing, nor was there any report on which team’s cheerleaders were more incompletely dressed.

An comprehensive volume of photographs will be posted here for analysis as soon as they become available.
