Even President Barack Obama Is Joking About Deflategate
Wow, this Deflategate scandal continues to get bigger and bigger.
The latest to chime in? None other than President Obama himself, who made a joke about the controversy in which the New England Patriots were accused of deflating balls during their AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts.
While giving a speech in Philadelphia on Thursday, the president couldn't help but comment about the matter:
I want to just remind the New England and Pacific Northwest contingents [that] this is the City of Brotherly Love, so regardless of what you think about Sunday, I want you all to keep it clean."
After that, someone in the crowd made a joke about bringing your own balls, which got a nice laugh.
The Patriots -- and presumably a set of unscathed balls -- will tangle with the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl on Sunday.
