By now I am sure you have heard about the “deflate-gate” scandal that is buzzing through the news wires this morning. The New England Patriots are being investigated for using deflated footballs in the rain, in their dismantling of the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
The only balls that got deflated were Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts’.
It was FORTY-FIVE-TO-SEVEN. Hello?
But surely enough, out come the Monday Morning soapbox stances from anyone with an opinion.
Ahem… here’s mine. 😉
I’m not one to condone cheating, but I am one to revel in gamesmanship. If this happened, which one is it? It’s a fine line that will be tight-roped repeatedly over the next few days, and by people more qualified than I.
My personal take on it… I wish my team could cheat like the New England Patriots. After all, they’re heading to Glendale, Arizona to face the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX.
For their sixth Super Bowl appearance in the Brady-Belichek era.
Sorry, the cheater era… if that’s what you need to call it to make yourself feel better about not being there as often as the Pats are.
