I called it!

Earlier this week, I wrote a post about how physics could explain the deflated footballs in the Patriots’ game on Sunday.  I was just watching the evening news and saw coverage of a news conference given by the Patriots’ head coach, explaining that they did an experiment in which they re-created the temperature changes of last Sunday and found that the balls had their pressure drop one and a half psi when they were left outdoors at forty degrees after having been inflated to regulation 12.5 psi indoors.

Maybe the media and the NFL should have been reading my blog! 😉
