Super Bowl Saturday: Looking at the Lighter Side of Deflate-Gate (VIDEOS)

By Elaine Magliaro

The biggest sports news story of the past two weeks has been Deflate-Gate–the controversy over the allegation that the New England Patriots used under-inflated footballs during the first half of the AFC championship game that pitted the team against the Indianapolis Colts. The Patriots won be a wide margin: 45-7.

There has been so much discussion in the news about this “soft-ball” scandal. Did the Patriots cheat? Who was responsible for the improperly inflated balls? Was it Bill Belichick? Tom Brady? Fingers have also been pointed at a locker-room attendant who had custody of the Patriots’ balls for a period of time.  Is he the culprit responsible for the under-inflated footballs? The plot thickens! I thought we should take a look at some of the humorous reactions to Deflate-Gate.

Deflate-Gate: The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore: The Patriots’ Tom Brady faces scrutiny for his role in an alleged cheating scandal, but Larry points out that dishonesty in sports is nothing new.

    It would be great if this spotlight was shown to the American people what the politicians are doing to us in Washington.
