You really learn something every single day on the internet. I had no idea Bill Belichick was of Croatian heritage until his girlfriend, Linda Holliday, posted this photo on Instagram. A little research into this Belichick/Croatian thing tells us that Bill’s grandfather Ivan Belicic came to United States in 1897 from Karlovac region and his grandmother Mary Barkovic came in 1898 also from near Karlovac.

Of course Linda is wearing this shirt during today’s Croatia-Mexico World Cup match. A Croatian win and they’re into the knockout round.

No word on what the little bet is.
