It’s summer, and of course that means it’s vacation season.

ESPN 1000 host Marc Silverman is among those taking time this summer to vacation. Silvy was spending this week in Nashville celebrating his 10-year wedding anniversary.

But Barstool Big Cat, making his regular weekly appearance on the show with Silverman’s co-host Tom Waddle and Pat Boyle, couldn’t help but joke Silvy.

“It’s no surprise that Silvy is on vacation,” Big Cat said. “The guy lives for vacation. Does he even work?”

The trio kept the bit going, adding that Silverman prioritized getting in touch with Jay Cutler over spending time with his wife celebrating their anniversary.

“He texted him the minute he landed!” Waddle said.

“He probably was like, hey Ally why don’t you go do something, I’m gonna meet up with Jay,” Big Cat added. “He picked Nashville for a reason! He wanted to be closer to Jay.”

In typical Belichick fashion, his response to those questions was “We’re just focused on training camp.”

Rich Eisen took issue with the way the reporters asked Belichick about the situation.

“I know it’s a tough job. I know being on the beat is not easy,” he said. “But you cannot ask this man yes or no questions, certainly when you’re asking him about potentially explosive, controversial items like this one.”

Eisen just thought it was a silly line of questioning to begin with, because it’s not like Belichick would be honest.

“It makes no sense to ask him that question to begin with,” he said. “And what do you think his answer is going to be?”
