Spurned Belichick Superfan Blows A Gasket

Laura London was a big Patriots fan. Specifically, a Bill Belichick fan. She started a website devoted to him, and ran it faithfully for years. Then she tried to sell it to the team for $1 million. That's when things got interesting.

AllThingsBillBelichick.com went online way back in 2000. It was a useful, if spartan, compendium of news related to the Patriots coach; in other words, a blog. It ran for ten frickin' years. That's an eternity in Internet time. All was good, until London approached the Patriots last week, offering it for sale.

@patriotfan The starting, & ending, price for the domain name is $1 million. It will live forever, as David Halberstam mentioned it in book.less than a minute ago via web

How I determined the million dollar asking price for my domain name, allthingsbillbelichick.com: $100,000 per year for 10 years.less than a minute ago via UberTwitter

A bargain, really. But the Patriots weren't interested, seeing as how they have their own website already. London was PO'ed.

Then things went downhill. First she accused a Pats player of plagiarizing her words:

Ty Warren says he feels a "new energy," a "different energy [he] can't really explain." What a load of horseshit. & that's MY MATERIAL, BTW.less than a minute ago via web

Then she went all paranoid, her sanity possibly slipping away by the second:

I swore I'd never get 2 this pt. I wanted 2b The Last Bitch Standing. End of. But Pats r experts @ breaking people. Watch out u might b nextless than a minute ago via UberTwitter

So now AllThingsBillBelichick.com has gone dark. The Patriots have lost a fan. Laura London Tweets on, boat against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
