His character on Louie may call New York City home, but Louis C.K. is a Boston native, and a professed fan of the hometown teams.
The comic was asked his take on the ongoing Deflategate saga during an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, telling the host he takes no issue with the Patriots’ supposed cheating.
“They want to win real bad, so sometimes you do stuff that’s not fair, so you can win,’’ he said. “I have no problem with it. I think it’s hilarious, and why not? It’s a stupid football game. Just deflate the balls, poke a guy in the eye or whatever. It’s football.’’
It bears mention the league has yet to present any evidence of the Patriots cheating, while team leaders have doubled down on proclamations of innocence. Still, a funny take from a funny guy, and far better than Saturday Night Live’s laughless take on the subject.
