NH1 My Take with Paul Quitadamo: Obama pulls out jokes during Patriots visit


I'm Paul Quitadamo for NH1 Sports and this is My Take.

I'm sure you saw that the Patriots went to the White House to meet with the President to be recognized for their Super Bowl victory.

As always the Comedian in Chief was ready with his one liners. His first attempt was met with some groans as he said he was skipping the jokes because he feared that 11 out of 12 of them would fall flat, of course referring to Deflategate. Mr. President as I tell my friend Ken, leave funny to the funny people. But that's not my point.

Later in the day a TMZ reporter asked former Bear Brian Urlacher what he thought about the comment and he sarcastically responded that he thought that went away. He suggested that the NFL turns a blind eye to the Patriots and that the Falcons for pumping in noise and the Browns for texting the sideline during games had been punished for far less serious infractions.

OK here's my take. Brian you may want to make sure your name is on the list for the concussion suit because I think your sense of reality may be fading. The Falcons and the Browns were caught red handed and Barney Fife could have closed those cases. But it does bring up a great point. Where does the deflated ball investigation stand? It's been over 12 weeks since the Patriots were accused of cheating and and the case was put into the hands of Super lawyer Ted Wells and still nothing. Imagine if this guy was investigating your homicide.

The Presidents poor attempt at humor had Bill Belichick giving him two thumbs down and you wonder if the coach was embarrassed. But he shouldn't be. The NFL should be embarrassed. If they can't figure out if someone tampered with balls while dozens of NFL officials were wondering around along with hundreds of other people plus surveillance cameras, it doesn't surprise me that they drop the ball on things like child abuse and domestic violence.

But hey, that's My Take. I want to thank you for giving me your take about last weeks topic on Facebook. Remember you can also email it to news@nh1.com.
