Will there be Deflated Balls in Arizona this weekend?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Zion Realty

I've held off on writing a blog post about the Super Bowl because let's be honest, who doesn't know the Super Bowl is this weekend in my home State of Arizona. There really isn't any new information I could write about that hasn't already been reported. The entertainment blogs have already written about all the hot nightclub spots and entertainment venues to be at for a chance at all sorts of celebrity sightings. The sports blogs have already written about the actual game match-up between the Seahawks and Patriots. The news blogs have already written about all the security precautions, road closures, and weather updates for the big event. 

So what's there left to blog about? It seems like everyone still wants to talk about Deflategate. Did the Patriots cheat by deflating their footballs in the AFC Championship game? Did Bill Belichick or Tom Brady know they were using footballs that had been tampered with? All I know is this: there will be a Super Bowl played this weekend here in Arizona and the Patriots will be playing in that game. Also, it's pretty funny to see serious news anchors and sports casters try and keep a straight face when talking about deflated balls. 

But since there will be plenty of celebrities and famous athletes from around the world here in town I'll shamelessly plug Zion Realty. If anyone rich and famous wants to buy a home here in Arizona while you're in town let me know! You can call, email, or contact me through my website at ZionRealtyAZ.com!

Nicole - I don't think there will be deflated balls in the Super Ball, but anything is possible.

William - There will be plenty of deflated fans this weekend!

Patricia - My oldest daughter is randomly a Seahawks fan. 

John - I don't think the Patriots could get away with any shenanigans on that big of a stage.

Nicole- I listen to Mike and Mike every morning and they were hysterical the other day trying to discuss the deflated balls. They even started #shrinkage trending on Twitter!

How air was in the ball would not change the outcome on the game. Let's focus on the Super Bowl.

Good luck and success.

Lou - I highly doubt it changed the outcome of that game either.

Bob - Thanks! I'm glad it's bringing a little humor to everyone's day!

My money is ONLY Brady's LMAO

The horrible way in which Seattle was "gifted" that victory as Green Bay chose to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, my money is on the repeat and I will have to catch it on replay as I am likely going to miss it this year but who knows...

Well, I am just hoping you get someone calling you to buy a home.  I think this whole episode got America laughing and everyone making jokes about this situation...On another note, if that is the way one insures a victory, this is a sad statement on the state of sports, and leave many of those who have heroes among teams deflated.  A

 Good morning Barbara. Deflated balls? Inflated egos? It seems to me as if the two go hand-in-hand. I wonder if the officials are going to have pocket gauges to check the air pressure in the balls prior to them being put into play. I think I've had enough of 'deflate gate' for one season.

Lets just end this with a plan.  I believe each team was to bring 12 footballs to the game.  Charge 1 million for each as a fine that is a 12 million dollar fine and strip them from the playoff for a full season.  that will get their attention.

Nicole, there will be, but that's about as far as I'm willing to write for now!

David - I was hoping for a Green Bay/New England Super Bowl myself.

Tammy - No wagers this year for us. I'll just be betting I gain 5 lbs.

Alexandra - That would be pretty funny if by chance someone read this silly blog post and called me.

Michael - Wouldn't that be funny if an official did that just as a joke?

James - The stakes are so high and the money made is so much that I'm afraid a measly 12 million dollars would only be a drop in the bucket for these teams.

Gabe - Somtimes you can say something without saying something

I have a friend who is a comedian and the press conferences surrounding deflate gate have provided easy jokes, too easy even.

I know that the officials will be checking all balls before and during the game. Now that didn't sound too nice did it?

Mike - I think it's the reason the story is still so prevelant. Too many jokes to be had.

Debbie - I can't even begin to imagine how the broadcasters will keep a straight face when they talk about it during the game. You know it's going to be brought up.
