Default OK, I Give Up

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

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.

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

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.

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)
