Tomorrow is the Super Bowl between The New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks.

“Deflate-Gate” is deflating. While there are rumors that the ball-boy may have done it, there doesn’t appear to be a history of such shenanigans:

Brady, too, has denied wrongdoing, amid an NFL investigation into allegations that 11 of 12 balls he used in the first half of a 45-7 rout of the Colts in the AFC Championship game were underinflated. His denial rang true not only to a couple of former Patriots quarterbacks but an ex-ball boy who spent a number of seasons helping Brady select the balls he used in games.

The former ball boy, who asked not to be identified because he is building a new career and does not want to become entangled in the national frenzy over Deflategate, said he never heard Brady express interest in the air pressure of game balls.

“The only thing I knew about his preferences were that he chose the balls that were more broken in and the ones he liked the grip of,’’ the ex-ball boy said. “He never said anything about inflation levels.’’

Nor did anyone else in the Patriots organization mention game-ball inflation levels to him, the former ball boy said.

And science (!) makes the Patriots’ climate change explanation plausible:

Thomas Healy does not have tickets to the Super Bowl, but he plans to fly to Phoenix with something that is even harder to come by than seats at Sunday’s game: the first detailed, experimental data on how atmospheric conditions might have reduced the air pressure in footballs used by the New England Patriots in their victory over the Indianapolis Colts nearly two weeks ago….

Healy, who provided The New York Times with an advance copy of his technical paper on the experiments, concluded that most or all of the deflation could be explained by those environmental effects.

“This analysis looks solid to me,” said Max Tegmark, a professor of physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who reviewed the paper at The Times’s request. “To me, their measurements mean that there’s no evidence of foul play.”

Why do Patriots haters hate science?

But put science aside, and your hate of the Patriots. How to choose which team to support?

The folks at Capitol City Project have an idea: Which team suckled the least off the public teet?

And with that as the test, you should choose the Patriots:

If you are rooting for the Seahawks, you obviously hate not only science, but America.

And you are sentenced to staring into this image for two hours.
