Bill Belichick: Thank God We Made It Out Of Mexico City Without Any Earthquakes Or Volcano Eruptions

Bill Belichick wasn’t so thrilled about the Patriots’ game last weekend in Mexico City, which is fair enough—at an altitude of nearly 7,500 feet (more than 2,000 feet higher than Denver), playing in Mexico City can present some unique challenges. Fine! But rather than sticking to that point in a radio interview on Boston’s WEEI today, Belichick veered into some more... interesting territory:

“I think we’re fortunate there was no volcano eruptions, earthquakes or anything else while we were down there. I mean, you have two NFL franchises in an area that I don’t know how stable the geological plates that were below us [were], but nothing happened so that was good.”


We’re fortunate that no NFL stadiums are in areas that have ever suffered earthquakes or volcano eruptions. Thank goodness exotic natural disasters like those are limited to foreign lands!
