So, it has finally come down to this: Nobody deflated those New England "patriotic" footballs.
Which then leads us to surmise that those sneaky footballs deflated themselves!!
Since the Bean Team already has a stash of self-deflating balls...then why not provide them with some
new toys to play with: A box of self-INFLATING whoopee cushions?
I bet they will find all sorts of useful things to do with them...especially if they add a lubricant.
