WATCH: Tom Brady mocks Deflategate in hilarious new shoe commercial
If you love Deflategate, you're in luck: Tom Brady just brought it up one last time
Great news for those of you who miss the halcyon days of Deflategate: Tom Brady of all people is talking about the NFL's mindless witch hunt that ended with him serving a four-game suspension to begin the 2016 season.
Brady, who had put the issue behind him in recent months, takes a tongue-in-cheek approach to the subject in a new Foot Locker commercial released on Wednesday.
Here's the set up: Two fans walk into a diner after buying shoes and wonder how Foot Locker is able to keep its Week of Greatness -- the week of Thanksgiving -- so great every year. Brady, who apparently frequents diners, overhears them and offers this nugget:
"Just because something is great year after year doesn't mean anything is going on," he tells the fans. "Why can't some things just be great? It starts with questions, and then questions turn into assumptions, and then assumptions turn into vacations. So why would you punish [the shoe store's] Week of Greatness for something that never even happened?"
We see what you did there, Tom.
Of course, the best revenge is winning, and the Patriots are the AFC's best team. And Brady, who is 39 and looks like he could play another five years, is a legit MVP candidate, even after missing the first month of the season.
Either way, we look forward to Roger Goodell's rebuttal in an upcoming Florsheim's ad.
