    Woman defends QB to the death, including in obituary

    The family of a longtime New England Patriots fan from Auburn is hoping her obituary will help "set the record straight" about quarterback Tom Brady's alleged involvement in the "Deflategate" scandal that has cast a dark cloud over the team this offseason. "She would also like us to set the record straight for her: Brady is innocent!!," read a line in the obituary of Patricia M. Shong, who passed away Monday at the age of 72. Shong's husband of 51 years, Leroy, said their daughter, Tracey Plante of North Carolina, decided to include the line proclaiming Brady's innocence in honor of her mother's unwavering support of the Pats' star quarterback.
