Shank's Huffing Leaves Readers Deflated

Leave it to Shank to take the tiniest infraction and, well, blow it up.

For those who have been off the planet the last few days, apparently there's a bunch of footballs that are shy a little bit of air. So what? As The CHB says, "[I]t didn’t matter in Sunday’s game" pitting the sky-high Patriots against the, ahem, deflated Colts.

If that's the case, when why all the fuss? We need only hold our breath until the next line to have that explained to us:

"But what about all the other games?" The CHB hyperventilates. "If the Patriots are cheating, are they not cheating systematically?"

Obviously, right? Let's just jump to the conclusion, damn the smoking balls.

Take a breath, Dan.

But wait a minute. Isn't the Patriots schedule filled with "tomato cans?" Weren't the Patsies playing patsies? That's what The CHB has led us to believe this past season (actually, not to get long-winded about it, but he's been huffing and puffing about that for the better part of a decade).

Everybody exhale. Like a fart in the wind, this too, shall, pass.

Shank won't of course notice that what's emerging is there was disagreement over what constituted "underinflation." The league and the Mainstream Sports Media is looking like the fools here and (natch) Shank is part of the fool's brigade.
