Maine Dunkin' Donuts: Free coffee for 'Deflategate' judge

LEWISTON, Maine (AP) A Dunkin' Donuts shop in Maine is offering free coffee for life to the federal judge who lifted New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's suspension.

The Sun Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1JToFhv ) the shop in Lewiston put the offer on a sign outside the store after U.S. District Court Judge Richard Berman erased Brady's four-game suspension over ''Deflategate.''

The offer quickly spread over social media.

Berman ruled NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell went too far in punishing the Super Bowl-winning quarterback. He says the suspension was ''premised upon several significant legal deficiencies.''

If the judge ever leaves the bench, fans at Thursday night's preseason game between the Patriots and New York Giants had another job in mind: Signs at Gillette Stadium urged Berman to run for president.
