New England Favorite Dunkin' Donuts Celebrates Tom Brady's Exoneration

Free coffee for the man who freed the Patriots quarterback.

A federal judge overturned New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension for the player's part in "DeflateGate," and folks in New England are overjoyed. A Maine outpost of Dunkin' Donuts, the iconic Boston-based doughnut chain, is giving some love to Judge Richard Berman by offering him free coffee for life.

ESPN's Darren Rovell reports the deal is no joke: If Berman is ever in the neighborhood, there's a free coffee with his name on it. On the other hand, there's no word on whether the Dunkin' Donuts location is offering a lifetime supply of spit in the coffee of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, the man who originally suspended Brady.

There aren't many local heroes bigger than Brady in New England. In June, about a month after the QB was suspended for using slightly deflated footballs during a playoff game last season, one Boston bar began serving "Free Brady Blonde IPA."
