Belichick Super Bowl Kiss

University of Phoenix stadium was full of victory hugs, cheers, and kisses after the New England Patriots had an incredible 28-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks at Super Bowl XLIX. Unfortunately, not all celebrations were met with approval. Patriots coach Bill Belichick has sparked widespread debate over whether or not his kiss with his daughter Amanda was inappropriate.

I agree with what the experts are saying on this, social media has created something out of nothing. Growing up, my family showed affection. I remember my grandparents would always ask for a kiss when we came to visit. Nobody looked at it as something it wasn’t. Now it seems like if there isn’t something going on, someone has to make something out of nothing. Unfortunately, for those like Bill Belichick, it means ruining what could have been a great celebrating moment. One quick snapshot and the vultures descend.

Before going and criticizing someone’s choices, we need to think about things. Yes, Belichick kissed his daughter. If she was 5 or 10 years old, nobody would have batted an eye; but because she was 30, all of a sudden there’s a big issue. In many cultures, kissing on the lips is normal for parents and children. However, it can also depend upon sociological and/or economical lines. For instance, Individuals part of the upper class tend to be more reserved. Therefore, they may hug, kiss on the cheek, or shake hands. Overall, people need to take the photo for what it was – a quick snapshot of an emotional moment.
