New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady was subjected to some ribbing on Twitter, post-#DeflateGate press conference, for his choice of attire, which included a winter knit hat and long-sleeved, athletic cotton-type shirt.

This, from Jimmy Kimmel: “I hope #TomBrady has a deflated football hidden in that hat,” Mediaite reported.

And another social media user posted a ridiculously costumed woman who was promoting a Canadian hockey team — and who had 10 hockey sticks sticking out of her back, fashioned in the shape of wings — with this text: “Based on his attire I feel like Tom Brady is not taking this press conference seriously.”

Another took a shot at the overall topic of the conference — the 11 deflated balls — with a picture of a previous “Saturday Night Live” skit involving Alec Baldwin, as Pete Schweddy, and his Christmas-time bakery balls.

The accompanying text: “Tom Brady giving a press conference right now,” Brian Ries posted, Mediaite reported.
