Pennsylvania shop owner makes deflated chocolate football

The Associated Press

CANONSBURG, Pa. (AP) A Pennsylvania candy maker is getting a big kick out of the New England Patriots' scandal over some deflated footballs.

The (Washington) Observer-Reporter (http://bit.ly/1wzxQsz ) reports that Bill Sarris had his Canonsburg staff make a chocolate football with a big dent in the side. It's not for sale, but he posted it on Facebook as a joke.

It's named the Bradie ball. That's B-R-A-D-I-E to avoid any legal issues.

The picture's caption says, "Net weight 13 lbs ... Oops! We meant 11.2 lbs."

The Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady have been accused of using underinflated footballs in the AFC Championship game. They play Sunday in the Super Bowl.

Sarris won't explain how the chocolate got its deflated appearance.

He says only, "You'll have to ask the Patriots how they did it."
