belichick.jpgNECN's "Styleboston" show threw itself a party this week, and Bill Belichick made the scene, just a few hours before the NFL free agent period began. The coach's companion Linda Holliday is one of the show's co-hosts, along with Eric Levin, Chris Talanian, and creator Terri Stanley. Holliday told us she became interested in fashion after participating in a few beauty contests - she was the first runner-up in the Mrs. Arkansas Pageant twice - and she later owned a boutique in Florida. "This show's got a great concept because it pulls together everything that's going on in Boston," said Holliday. Belichick smiled for our camera, but wasn't in the mood to talk. "Nope," said the coach, who traded his hoodie for a golf shirt and sport coat. "This is Linda's night." (Holliday hoped we understood: "Bill's Bill, what can I say? To know him is to love him.") Other milling about the ballroom at the Liberty included Pats linebacker coach Matt Patricia and wife, Raina, Belichick's righthand man Berj Najarian, politico John Sasso, designer Sam Mendoza, TV types Jim Braude, Chet Curtis, and Janet Wu; doyenne Marilyn Riseman; comedian Steve Sweeney, former BRA exec Harry Collings, and Hubbell Group CEO Connie Hubbell.
