Deflated Footballs and Other Expectations

In these times that seem to try men's souls, with politics, the economy, the state of morals or the lack thereof, and the world situation, it seems that the state of humor is very much like the solvency of Greece's economy or the art world of West Virginia. Nevertheless, the Goddess of the Double Entendre sometimes awakes from her sleep to induce healing mirth on a serious situation. This is what has transpired from the latest -gate, the New England Patriots football deflating scandal known as Deflategate! [God, I wish they would stop using that -gate suffix!]

Anyway, in addition to the expected grousing over the fact of the cheating and the debate over the severeness or lack thereof of the penalties, there has been some evidence that Princess Lum, serving in the role as the Goddess of the Double Entendre, has been working behind the scenes:

Anyway, Tom Brady has been suspended for four games in the 2015-2016 season, and the Patriots have been fined $1,000,000 by the NFL, plus losing a few draft picks. No, they weren't vacated as NFL Champs, they didn't wear sackcloth and ashes (L.L. Bean or Orvis doesn't carry ugly hoodies in those products), but the 2014-2015 season and the Super Bowl was tainted by this halitosis of scandal.

Oh well, as a Washington politician would say, "Better halitosis than no breath at all."

I can fearlessly predict that during the 2015 season and beyond people will have an obsession with how well footballs are inflated (especially when the Patriots are playing), deflation metaphors with spring up like chickweed (with low-scoring games and under-endowed cheerleaders, for example), and football fans can expect a steady stream of ball humor to grab their cojones. 

Blame it on Princess Lum:

Princess Lum, thinking of a double entendre.

They should have given the Patriots a trophy that has a obviously deflated saggy football on it.

The West Va thing is about the Mall Wart princess and her Rube Louvre, right?

I was born in WV and I'm not sure they have an art world (my apologies to all college and university students with Art majors in the great state of WV).

Go, Mountaineers!

Glad to see you're on the ball, Angel!

The art of WV is like the art of AL, in all likelihood. The Pats got off easily, a fine and a few years of discussion about their flaccid balls!

Well played, Angel!

What would they have called it if their water had been spiked with something?
