Did you see Ben Affleck’s spit-flecked rant about the injustice of Tom Brady’s Deflategate suspension Wednesday night? He hopes so! In an explanation posted to his Facebook page, the actor, who was appearing on the premiere of Bill Simmons’s Any Given Wednesday, says he has no regrets about the obscenity-laden monologue. Well, just one regret: He said “fuck” exactly six too many times: “For those of you keeping score at home, I gave exactly 18 f*cks about my Pats. Upon reflection, 12 probably would have been sufficient.” Still, he says, “We Boston sports fans have always been known for our subtlety. I love the back and forth. One of my favorite interviews I’ve done.” Affleck closed by saying he hoped viewers watched the entire episode, though knowing how late-night TV works these days, that seems unlikely.
