One of the most amazing things about #DeflateGate is the way it has crossed the lines of sports into the national consciousness.
And it made it all the way to the White House.
Press secretary Josh Earnest cracked on Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s press conference, telling reporters he didn’t necessarily buy what Brady was selling.
“The one thing I can tell you is that for years it’s been clear that there is no risk that I was going to take Tom Brady’s job as quarterback of the New England Patriots,” Earnest said, via Sean Sullivan of the Washington Post. “But I can tell you that as of today, it’s pretty clear that there’s no risk of him taking my job, either.”
Of course, Earnest is also a Chiefs fan, but the fact PSI: New England has become a national punchline should tell you that next week’s media day is going to be a special event, indeed.
