It looks like people are starting to come forward to take credit for the NFL “deflategate” scandal. Several oddly familiar faces cropped up on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in a video where they said they were the ones who deflated the footballs Tom Brady was using in the AFC Championship game.
For one thing, the guys gave different names when they introduced themselves as part of their confessions. For another thing, their thick and in no way fake-sounding Boston accents clearly pegged them as natural-born Patriots fans.
They made it very clear that neither Tom Brady nor Bill Belichick had anything to do with it, because they were too busy being wicked awesome.
Kimmel might have gotten a little confused, too, because he confronted the guy who looked an awful lot like Matt Damon after he’d said he acted alone.
“Do you know why you acted alone?” Kimmel asked him. “Because nobody wants to act with you.”
“Jimmy Kimmel Live” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.
