We in New England
have known this all along. Pats rule!
I was laughing when I found out that those balls are first inflated indoors than are brought outside for the duration of the game
. Of course they'll deflate. Duhhh!
My first used inflatable
has taught me that. My first ownership

Told me to bring it in inside and let it sit in a warm house for a while. Few days later it was back to its good inflated self. These days I should be calling that dinghy
