Is Deflategate finally solved?
ESPN–citing “sources”–said 48-year-old Jim McNally is the Patriots’ staffer responsible for providing deflated footballs in the AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Apparently, McNally was the attendant assigned to work the officials’ locker room. He then tried giving a deflated ball to an alternate official. Really, the story is a little fuzzy, as most are when told behind ‘sources’.
One thing is true though: Jim McNally just became a whole lot more famous.
Pats locker room assistant Jim McNally not only isn't listed on Pats switchboard, he didn't seem to have a Google hit before today.
