One thing you probably should not mention to a huge fan of the New England Patriots (and a known friend of Tom Brady) if you don’t want a 5-minute long, profanity fueled tirade on your new HBO series is Deflategate. That’s probably exactly why Bill Simmons brought it up with Ben Affleck in his first episode of his new HBO show, Any Given Sunday, because he thought it would make for good TV.
He was not wrong.
I’m not sure how many times Ben Affleck drops an F-bomb in this clip, but it’s more per-second than a Tarantino movie. He also takes a swipe at Eli Manning for some mysterious reason (still bitter over those Super Bowl losses, Affleck?).
As someone who loathes the New England Patriots, I nevertheless do not disagree with most of what Affleck argues, except for all the suggestions that “Tom is so classy.”
