A 10-year-old kid from Lexington, Kentucky named Ace Davis created a science fair project that set out to PROVE that TOM BRADY is a cheater.
Obviously, it's an AWESOME concept . . . or at least it would be to anyone living outside New England.
At first glance, it just looks like a poster about the DeflateGate controversy, with memes, and recaps of the NFL's investigation, plus some unflattering pictures of Brady, including one of him crying. (Which frankly, is a nice touch.)
But Ace actually did some SCIENCE. In order to prove that underinflated balls gave Brady a competitive advantage, he, his mom and his sister threw footballs of varying inflation levels.
And they found that the underinflated balls traveled the farthest.
Ace WON the science fair, and now he moves on to a district competition.
In case you can't tell, Ace is NOT a Brady fan. When he was asked how he came up with the idea, he said, quote, "Because I hate Tom Brady. He's been accused of cheating before, I want him to be caught."
And when asked what he'd say to Brady if he met him, he said, quote, "Gimme some of your money, you don't deserve it."
Ace also predicts that the L.A. Rams will win the Super Bowl 30-14, after Brady throws three interceptions and Todd Gurley runs for two touchdowns.
In fairness to any Patriots fans out there, since DeflateGate, the Patriots have been almost unstoppable. They've made it to FOUR Super Bowls . . . winning two. And they could make it THREE next weekend.
Since the game where Brady cheated, they've compiled a record of 59-16, including 9-2 in the playoffs. So, if Brady is STILL deflating footballs, that's on the NFL for not stopping him. And if he isn't, then he clearly doesn't need to.
Also, in addition to Ace's research, the biggest advantage to an underinflated football is that it makes it softer . . . and thus easier to grip, throw, and catch. Which is extra helpful in bad-weather games where it's cold or rainy.
