If you're starting to feel a little suffocated by Ballghazi hysteria, allow funnyman Louis C.K. to bring a little levity into the situation.

C.K. is a Boston native and a Patriots fan, and so he was of course asked about the scandal while a guest on the Late Show last night. His perspective—"Why not? It's a stupid football game. Deflate the balls, poke a guy in the eye or whatever, it's football."—is one that we could have used a little more of when columnists were losing their minds last week.
