Bill Nye Drops Ball Science
Bill Belichick is clearly not a scientist, despite his best attempts at a press conference earlier this week. We’ve avoided covering the so-called “deflategate” over the past week, because you’re obviously getting enough of it from every other media outlet on the planet. But this response from Bill Nye was so perfect, we couldn’t resist sharing it. We’re particularly fond of the public service announcement while he’s waiting on the footballs in the refrigerator.
One of our other favorite scientists also weighed in on the issue at hand…
For the Patriots to blame a change in temperature for 15% lower-pressures, requires balls to be inflated with 125-degree air.
