A veterinary office in Georgia has a message at Tom Brady — and they’re punching below the belt.
The Case Veterinary Hospital in Savannah used their billboard to pick a dogfight with the New England Patriots quarterback and also raise some awareness for pet care.
“We’re no Tom Brady,” the sign outside the building reads. “But we do deflate balls!”
Not surprisingly, the folks in Savannah are rooting for the Atlanta Falcons to beat Brady’s New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI.
Brady, of course, found himself at the center of the Deflategate controversy when he and the New England Patriots were accused of lowering the air pressure in the footballs used in the 2015 AFC Championship game. Brady served a four game suspension.
“We are aware that this is a little crude,” the veterinary hospital said on its Facebook page. “However what better way is there to show support for the Atlanta Falcons AND promote neutering (and spaying) your pets?!”
Dr. Carla Case McCorvey, who owns the facility, said that she wasn’t sure she liked the sign when she first saw it, but her employees convinced her to keep it up.
“I think everybody here is an Atlanta Falcons fan, well, not everybody,” she told local station WTGS. “We’ve gotten some kind of tongue-in-cheek clients that have said, ‘Hey, I’m a Patriots fan,’ and we say, ‘Nobody’s perfect.’”
The Falcons will take on the Patriots on Sunday, February 5.
