A Savannah veterinary hospital admits that the Super Bowl-themed message on its advertising board is a bit crude. But plenty of people are enjoying it, according to the Savannah Morning News.

The message, which went up Friday, reads, “We’re no Tom Brady, but we do deflate balls!”

Brady’s New England Patriots will play the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl on Feb. 5.

The message is a reference to “Deflategate.” In January 2015, the NFL began looking into the possibility that the Patriots played the AFC Championship against the Indianapolis Colts with partially deflated footballs. As a result, the league suspended Brady for four games, which he served at the start of this season.

The sign came about because of an assignment that Dr. Carla Case-McCorvey gave one of her veterinary technicians, the newspaper reported.

“They ran it by our hospital administrator for permission, but waited until he was on the phone,” Case-McCorvey said.

Case-McCorvey said she’s gotten calls, texts and emails from clients, vendors, old friends and even some Patriots fans.

The hospital’s Facebook post has been shared almost 700 times.

Also, the sign has helped draw attention to the importance of neutering and spaying pets, Case-McCorvey told the newspaper.
