    How Can I Keep My Balls Firm?

    I've got a couple of footballs that I'd like to put in display cases now that I have the extra room in my house, and wanted to know if there's a way to help with the deflation.

    Is there a way to keep them firm without having to pump them with air when they deflate naturally?

    Nitrogen doesn't seep like air - I know they use that for tires.

    Ahh, nitrogen...never thought of that. Now my next question - where can I find nitrogen to pump into them?

    I thought the way I said the question might catch some eyes and get some more views, lol.

    Thanks for the response. Just one problem - there's no Costco within 50 miles, lol. I'll do some Googling and see if I can find somebody around here.

    If you were to have a fire in your home...couldn't that be potentially really dangerous to have a bunch of nitrogen filled footballs in your home?

    I don't believe so. Although many fertilizers and bomb-making materials have nitrogen compounds in them, I don't think that nitrogen itself is any worse then regular air. Now if you were to fill your balls with hydrogen, that would be a different story.
