Larry Bird has publicly come out in support of Tom Brady in the whole Deflategate debacle, and he has pretty much thrown Bob Kravitz under the bus where he belongs. Kravitz, if you remember, is the Indianapolis sports reporting weasel who basically got the whole scandal started.
Here’s what Bird told Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe.
“I thought it was a bunch of lying, if you want to know the truth,” said Bird. “That’s something [Bob] Kravitz [Indianapolis sports columnist] came up with, and I never believed any of it.
“It doesn’t really matter. It was written about a lot around the country, but here in Indianapolis, most people knew. We knew the Patriots was going to beat them anyway. I thought it was pretty chintzy. People finally realized they would have beat us anyway. I just laughed about it.
“They got the footballs they played with and we got our footballs. And their footballs beat our footballs.
“I watch every one of the Colts games. I really like them. But my son loves all things about the Patriots. And I never root against the Patriots.”
I love this this! Larry Bird is the President of the Indiana Pacers and he just murdered his hometown reporter because he knows what garbage this is!
Basketball Jesus and TB12. The Boston greats stick together!
While we’re at it, let’s watch some Bird highlights.
Oh yea, Bird had some thoughts on a couple of other sports cities and no one measures up to Boston.
“There’s no sports town like Boston. I don’t care where you go. They talk about Chicago and Philadelphia. No. They don’t ever compare to Boston. I mean, there’s ladies in their 90s and they can name every player on the Red Sox and Patriots team. You just don’t have it anywhere like that.”
and after all these years the Hick from Frenchlick still knows what’s up!
