Hole In The Wall



= 空気を抜く(抜ける)。

NFLのDeflateGate、未だに話題になってるのはPatriotsのTom Bradyが空気が抜けていたことを知っていて、処罰を命じられたこと。それに対するPatriotsの弁護士の言い分が秀逸。


"Mr. Jastremski would sometimes work out and bulk up -- he is a slender guy and his goal was to get to 200 pounds. Mr. McNally is a big fellow and had the opposite goal: to lose weight. 'Deflate' was a term they used to refer to losing weight. One can specifically see this use of the term in a Nov. 30, 2014 text from Mr. McNally to Mr. Jastremski: 'deflate and give somebody that jacket.' ... This banter, and Mr. McNally's goal of losing weight, meant Mr. McNally was the 'deflator.' There was nothing complicated or sinister about it."
