An online sportsbook offered a prop bet on how many times “DeflateGate — or a reasonable facsimile thereof — would be mentioned on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” broadcast of the Patriots vs. Colts.
Al Michaels, NBC’s lead play-by-play broadcaster for the NFL, was aware of such an offering and mentioned it on air.
He followed that mention with this: “DeflateGate, DeflateGate, DeflateGate, DeflateGate.”
The over/under was 2.5.
Michaels then added, “Four. You won the over.”
