Bill Belichick shares important message amid coronavirus pandemic

Bill Belichick shares important message amid coronavirus pandemic

As much of the world continues to adjust to life during the coronavirus pandemic, a number of Boston sports figures have delivered messages of encouragement as well as important reminders to stay home.

On Wednesday, Bill Belichick became the latest to do so. The New England Patriots head coach issued a PSA thanking medical professionals and urging the public to stay home during these difficult times.

"Hello, this is Bill Belichick. I want to reach out to you in these uncertain and unprecedented times to let you know that I, and the New England Patriots, are behind you. We are all in this together.

"Thank you to our heroic medical professionals -- doctors, nurses, medical workers, and others -- who are selflessly and courageously doing their job to take care of others in need. We have heard your stories and seen some of your great work. You are truly champions and warriors.

"We are facing a difficult opponent. It will take teamwork, discipline, and commitment to do the right things all the time. That includes staying at home. I encourage everyone to shelter in place for as long as necessary as we fight this virus together. There are plenty of things we cannot do right now, but let's focus on what we can do. We can adapt, we can adjust, and we can make better decisions right now for the betterment of the future. As I tell our team, let's keep stringing good days together, and we will get through this."

Ty Law shares hilarious story of how Peyton Manning tried to get him drunk at Pro Bowl

Ty Law shares hilarious story of how Peyton Manning tried to get him drunk at Pro Bowl

Peyton Manning's preparation and football acumen rank among the best of any quarterback in NFL history, and he was always looking for a way to get an edge on his opponents.

One of those opponents was New England Patriots cornerback Ty Law, who played in Foxboro from 1995 through 2004 and went up against Manning's Indianapolis Colts many times.

Law did an interview Wednesday with WEEI's "Dale & Keefe", and he told a funny story about Manning trying to get him drunk at the Pro Bowl in an attempt to find out what the Patriots star was thinking in certain on-field situations.

It's hard to fault Manning for trying. Law typically played very well against the legendary quarterback, and one performance sticks out above the rest.

The Colts entered the 2003 AFC Championship Game at Gillette Stadium with a red-hot offense that scored 79 points over the previous two playoff rounds combined. The Patriots defense stepped up to the challenge and did a tremendous job slowing down Manning in a 24-14 win as New England punched its ticket to Super Bowl XXXVIII. Manning threw four interceptions, and Law had three of them.

Law was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of the 2019 class. Manning, who's eligible for the Hall of Fame beginnng in 2021, will soon follow Law into Canton.
