Louis C.K. Is Totally Cool With The Patriots Deflating Balls And Cheating To Win

Beloved comedian Louis C.K. originally hails from Boston, so it’s no surprise that he’s a fan of the New England Patriots. The blizzard pounding New York City today forced C.K. to cancel a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden, so he went on Letterman earlier in the day to shoot-the-shit with the talk show host. The story-that-never-dies, #DeflateGate, naturally came up, with Louis C.K. offering some brilliant levity to the situation.

“Sometimes you do stuff that’s not fair so that you can win. I have no problem with it. I think it’s hilarious. It’s a stupid football game; Deflate the balls, poke the guy in the eye or something…. It’s football.”

Deep breathes, deep breathes, deep breathes. It’s just a game, you guys.

Oh, while we’re on the subject, you need to read the e-mail C.K. sent to ticket holders of his MSG show. It’s classic Louis. C.K. Check it out below, via USA Today:

Dear friend,

Hi. It’s Louis CK here to make sure everyone knows that my show tomorrow at Madison Square Garden has been canceled. All ticket holders will automatically get a refund. I am really sorry about this and I am surprised to learn as I write this that there is only one L in the word canceled. I’ll have to take my phone’s word for it. But it doesn’t look right to me.

In any case, there seems to be a massive storm approaching New York City. They are calling this storm “historic” which…. Well I didn’t know you could call a thing historic if it hasn’t happened yet. But I’m not one to defy future historic events. And I have to be respectful of the responsibility I have to the 15,000 people who are holding tickets to the show and could be stranded somewhere historically trying to get to or from my show. I think it’s clearly better that I alter history in the name of safety and cancel. Besides, if you’ve ever tried to get your deposit back when you rent a banquet hall for a wedding that gets snowed out, you don’t want to even know what the deposit is on Madison Square Jesus Christing Garden is.

So. No show. I will be on Letterman tonight, though. So you can yell boo right at my stupid and very handsome face on your tv screen or on your paper towel or your watch or whatever you view Letterman on.

Also I will be contacting you very soon about my new standup special which will be historically available only on my website louisck.net very soon.

I really want to thank everyone who came to the shows at MSG. It was an incredible experience. The audiences were great. And the crew at MSG is classy and professional.

Okay. That’s it. I have to do some laundry now.

Take care of yourself and don’t be a jerk to people.

Louis CK.
