Oh, 'balls!' -- Social media reacts to Tom Brady news conference

It may have been one of the most memorable media conferences in the history of professional football.

On Thursday, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady told the media he had nothing to do with the scandal over whether his team cheated during the AFC championship game.

The team is accused of deflating footballs so they were easier to throw and catch in the slick weather conditions.

From whether Brady was lying about his knowledge of the incident to his phrasing with the word “balls,” social media loved every moment, and opinions, jokes and memes were plentiful.
