Did you seriously think I was going to let something as wonderful as this go by without comment? Long story short: Somehow the footballs used by the New England Patriots in last week's final playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts lost air pressure. This is a big deal because a deflated ball is a ball that is easier to catch and throw. The QB can get a better grip on it when he throws and whoever catches it also can more easily grip it. Famed, very, very rich and very, very beautiful supermodel Gisele Bündchen's husband, the very, very rich and very, very beautiful Tom Brady, is at the center of the controversy because allegedly he is the most logical person to have taken air from the balls. More mysterious still, the balls seemed to gain pressure in the second half of the game.
1. If the ball is found to have been tampered with, the result of the game will not be reversed. The Pats will still have royally creamed the Colts' corn and they will still go to the Super Bowl. If anything, they may lose future draft picks. NFL season and post-season rules differ wildly it seems.
2. Dear god in heaven, Tom Brady is a fine, fine, fine, fine specimen. He's tall, handsome, and is very passionate about how he selects a game football, which he abbreviates.
3. Balls deflate then reinflate thereby proving that the New England Patriots control all things related to the physical sciences in Boston during game play.
4. I don't know if they cheated, I don't know who cheated, I don't know why they would want to cheat; I just want Tom Brady to talk about balls some more.
Below is a "deflategate" clip:
Fox News is not a news station. It's a cable channel manned by people who say things they probably don't mean at all but they get paid well and have so many commercial sponsors that they keep saying outrageous crap so they can keep making money. Their "journalists" like Christmas in Vermont; they enjoy fine shoes and clothes; they like April in Paris (but they probably don't go all the hell around Paris on the Metro or by bus, which is something I do, sometimes by accident, usually on purpose).
The whole thing about various parts of Paris being as bad as Iraq or Afghanistan is outrageous, dangerous, and, really, defamation. The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, talks of suing Fox. (Yes, please!) The French TV show, Le Petit Journal, took to the the streets of Paris in its own way. I am officially in love with Le Petit Journal.
