Remember Deflategate? Whoever writes the jokes for the Academy of Country Music Awards clearly does.
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was a guest at the ACM's on Sunday, which were hosted at AT&T Stadium. First, he threw a bullet of a pass to country singer Luke Bryant.
Then, Blake Shelton made sure to check that the ball was legal.
"This isn't one of them deflated balls, is it?" Shelton quipped.
"Blake, we're the Dallas Cowboys," Romo said with a massive grin. "We have real balls."
The audience erupted in hearty laughter, even though Deflategate hasn't been in the news for nearly three months.
