WHO’S A GOOD — AND NOW VERY POPULAR — BOY?!?!?
Bill Belichick’s girlfriend says their dog, Nike, is!!!
Linda Holliday said on “The Adam Schefter Podcast” this week that the pup was so adorable during its viral moment at the NFL draft … the dog’s fan base has grown from a couple hundred to nearly 20,000!!!!
If you missed it … Nike stole the show at the Patriots’ draft last Friday — when it took Belichick’s seat just seconds before New England made its 2nd-round pick.
Cameras caught the pup staring at The Hoodie’s monitors … and the scene couldn’t have been cuter.
Linda says within minutes of Nike’s unexpected cameo — her phone blew up … with people hitting the follow button on the dog’s IG like crazy!!!
“Nike went from 1,000 followers to about 10,000 followers,” Holiday says, “and my phone was just blowing up.”
Nike is now up to over 16,000 followers on his social media account since the draft … this despite Linda saying she’s only put a handful of pics on the page!!
As for how the dog did captaining Bill’s ship during the weekend? The coach and Linda have got a lot of belly rubbing to do … ’cause most pundits gave the Patriots’ picks an A grade!!!
