If you read the headlines after researching why Ben Affleck’s name is currently trending on Twitter, you would expect to see a falling down drunk Affleck making a fool out of himself. Yes, the New England native who is Ben does put his raw feelings about Tom Brady and Deflategate on display in a manner that probably includes more curse words than LeBron James’ speech at the Cavs parade on Wednesday — but it’s not the “s*** show” that people are making it out to be.

Anyway, the video contains pretty colorful language from Affleck — so non-Southies beware.

Ben’s rant has helped bring attention to the new show, Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons on HBO. Bill recently was interviewed about his split from ESPN — and Simmons discussed how horrible the break was, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter. Now it seems Simmons has a new hit on his hands, with celebrities like Affleck feeling so comfortable that they can let down their hair and rant about inflated and deflated balls.

The video, titled “Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons: Ben Affleck on Deflategate (HBO),” has swelled to nearly 100,000 views in less than 24 hours or so. While it does contain some slurring from Affleck, it seems like any old sports talk one would hear with their buddies at a bar or at home in their living rooms. It doesn’t seem like the cry for an intervention or the clarion call to necessarily sign a person up for AA that folks on social media are making it out to be. Perhaps.
