There are questions worth asking Bill Belichick, and others that are just plain stupid.
Asking to take a selfie with the New England Patriots head coach is a blatant example of the latter.
But don’t tell that to WAAF-FM’s Anthony “Spaz” Parziale. During Super Bowl LIII media availability Tuesday afternoon, the Boston radio host actually had the stones to run that knee-slapper by Belichick.
As you might expect, Parziale’s request didn’t go so well.
Parziale: Kind of a unique question …
Parziale: With social media, could I come up and take a selfie with you Coach? Would that be OK?
Belichick: Yeah. Yeah, we’ll get that later, all right?
Parziale: Maybe if I just got in front of the podium and you waved?

There’s a fine line between being funny and being annoying, and Parziale clearly missed the mark.
Belichick will the lead the Patriots against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night in Atlanta. A victory in the Big Game would give Belichick and the Pats their sixth Lombardi Trophy.
