Dear Mr. Coach Bill Belichick,
Uncle Rico's coach never gave him the chance to lead his team to a state championship in the 4th quarter that Uncle Rico deserved. The chance that Uncle Rico earned. By now I'm sure you've heard the news that your third string quarterback is injured. Is it a coincidence between being down in the 4th quarter and being down to the 4th quarterback? Coincidence not. It is not coincidence. Coincidence is the work of a universe without a God, and that universe is not ours. It is Europe's universe.
Mr. Coach Bill Belichick, our American universe is one lead by the greatest quarterback to ever play the game. You might have heard of Him. His name is God.
There is only one game left until your first-string "non-system" quarterback Tim Brady comes back to play for you. Until then you have nothing to lose by starting Uncle Rico.
No, you have nothing to lose, because you can only win with Uncle Rico.
You and your New England Patriots like winning. Some would say you even love it. Uncle Rico likes winning. Some would say he even would love to finally experience it after a lifetime of pining for the chance he deserves. The chance Uncle Rico never got.
What is more patriotic than picking someone up by their cleatstraps and letting them be the winner that they truly are, the winner that every American truly is?
Mr. Coach Bill Belichick, if there's one thing you hate, it's sleeves on your hooded sweatshirts. If there's another thing you hate, it's losing. But if there's another, another thing you hate, it's being unpatriotic.
Starting Uncle Rico at quarterback next week against the Bills is the winning thing to do. It is the un-sleeved thing to do. It is the patriotic thing to do.
Uncle Rico never made millions of dollars. Uncle Rico never lived in a big old mansion somewhere. Uncle Rico never soaked it up in a hot tub with his soulmate.
Mr. Coach Bill Belichick, your team can be that hot tub. You can be his soulmate. Do the patriotic thing and let Uncle Rico soak with you.
With respect, hope, and curiosity,
