Woman uses obituary to say Brady is innocent in 'Deflategate'

Woman's Obituary Claims Tom Brady Is Innocent

Everyone seems to have an opinion on Deflategate.

Patricia M. Shong felt so strongly about the scandal that she defended Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in her obituary.

Boston.com reports that Patricia M. Shong died in Auburn, Massachusetts on May 18 and was laid to rest the following Friday. Her obituary says the 72-year-old enjoyed scrapbooking, weekly card night and spending time with her family -- but that's not why the obit has gone viral. The last line in the last paragraph is the reason why total strangers are talking about the late Patricia M. Shong:

Patricia enjoyed scrapbooking, cross stitching, pixel art, knitting, and crocheting. She relished weekly card night with the ladies. Patricia was known for being an avid reader which all who knew her can attest to based on her mini home library. She especially loved spending time with her family. She would also like us to set the record straight for her: Brady is innocent!!


Tom Brady was suspended for the first four games of the upcoming 2015 season based on the league's determination that he was "at least generally aware of the actions of the Patriots' employees involved in the deflation of the footballs."

While Brady has filed an appeal claiming his innocence, Shong didn't need any convincing.
