New York Post Headline Offers Up a Painfully Dumb Take on DeflateGate (Pic)

New York Post headline

No one’s ever expected a New York Post headline to be clever; the newspaper is a pretty notorious tabloid that skirts journalism whenever possible. But last night’s front page may take the cake for stupidity. The New York Post headline reads “What a Blow!” while featuring Gisele and Tom Brady on the cover. And because the paper isn’t one to leave things there, they put a bubble over Gisele’s head asking “Tommy, why did your balls go soft?”

Because of the deflated footballs, get it?

Only, I don’t get it. Why would Tom Brady’s balls go soft? I get that they’re like testicles, but…what? People’s balls don’t go soft. At least, I don’t think they do. Of course, looking for an answer in this New York Post headline is sort of like pissing in the wind. The rage runs rampant with hometown bias for New York sports teams, so naturally, they lash out at all things Boston.

Anyway, it’s not newsworthy that the Post put up a terrible headline, but if anyone can explain the soft balls thing, and how that’s a pun, please shoot us a message. Ugh.
