When people talk about “Tom Brady’s balls” it’s usually in the context of deflating them, and it’s usually a stupid joke that you’ve heard no less than 1,000 times. But in 2005, the Patriots QB had them inflated, three times their normal size, in his non-team equipped ball bag. Said condition was caused by a sports hernia, and affected him during the final two weeks of the regular season, as well as the playoffs, which may explain why he lost in the postseason for the first time in his career. Still, to play through that pain shows he has the fortitude worthy of such a condition.
