Where can I take my Texans football to get it inflated? I bought a pump, and tried to pump in air. I am exhausted, about to collapse, and the ball is still the same size.

Sounds like you got a hole. When pumping
Fill the sides slow. Because a small hole will cause it to not to inflate!

Plus while pumping air will leak, if you fill a cold spot leave your hand there, and pump agin. If it continues to let air out. There's a hole

Uh, for real? Did you put the needle in the ball to inflate?

Pump slowly and listen for leaks. Or I guess you could put soapy water on it and look for air bubbles while pumping.

LOL, I did that, plus I fluffed the ball a little to be sure not to puncture with the sharp needle. Now that I've had bed rest, I will try again.

What's the estimated time to inflate?

Stick it in farther - you don't want the hole blocked. :kitten:

Finally! I didn't insert the pin far enough. After successfully inflating the Texans gift, I gathered the balls that had lost air over time and adds air. Thanks!

Also, remember to lick your finger and wipe the nipple right after pulling the pin out.

Pervert!

NO!!!!!!!!!! You're the pervert!! And somehow I knew you would be the one to twist this into something it wasn't! Everybody, pre-78 years old knows that whenever you fill a ball (whether a football, basketball or whatever kinda inflatable ball), you should always seal the hole with a little liquid on the nipple...

You're the pervert, you sick curmudgeon!!! :texanbill:

Isn't that a song?

Before you stick it, you got to lick it.

I am sure they were referring to souvenir balls. (by all means play off those potential puns)

Bill is the only one that prefers to lick it AFTER he sticks it...

Mission accomplished! I went on to bigger and better things to inflating one of those sports chairs. I'm back to square one. It had one of those foot pumps, and I got the middle pumped, no problem, now the rest of that thing, I'm going to bow out for electricity.
