Bill Nye the Science Guy Takes the Air Out of Deflategate

    Maybe someone should take all the hot air out of Bill Nye.

    Professors of planetary science at MIT; mechanical engineering at Boston University; physics at Boston College; and applied mathematics, physics, and biology at Harvard find Belichick’s explanation plausible.

    And “HeadSmart Labs, a Pittsburgh research company working on preventing head injuries from sports, said that it conducted a study that found weather and field conditions alone could have lowered the pressure by as much as 1.95 psi.”

    So who are you going to trust, Nye, a longtime resident of Seattle or HeadSmart Labs in Pittsburgh?
