Spurned Belichick Superfan Blows A Gasket

Illustration for article titled Spurned Belichick Superfan Blows A Gasket

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.

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

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.
