Indy Businesses Tackle Deflategate Scandal
Local businesses around Indianapolis aren’t dropping the subject of Sunday’s Indianapolis Colts loss to the New England Patriots. The ball-tampering scandal known colloquially as Deflategate has become a marketing ploy for some, as shown in the photos above.
Colts players and fans, as well as economic opportunists, obviously still have Deflategate on the brain. And why not? Reggie Miller and Pat McAfee do, too:
So how in da H_LL did the balls get deflated?? #AskTom

If New England was to be DQ'd.. We'd be their replacements right??… I should probably lay off these strawberry margs

And here’s our take: While some fans would blame the desultory showing on deflated footballs the Patriots introduced during the AFC Championship game, in truth, the Colts were quite simply whelmed.
