Tuesday May 12th, 2015

Tom Brady's four-game suspension for his role in the deflation of footballs before the AFC championship games is big news, but more importantly, it offers a lot of opportunities for puns and double entendres. 

The entire Deflategate investigation has been a field day for the headline writers of New York City's tabloid papers, who have previous made declaration such as "Great Balls of Liar" from the New York Daily News, and the ever so subtle "NFL Squeezes Pats' Balls" from the New York Post.

The latest round of headlines do not disappoint, showing that there is no end in sight for jokes revolving around the word "balls."
