Since this whole thread came up as a result of NSI getting potentially
thwacked by the government for being the twits that we know they are (it
always takes the gov longer to figure these things out apparently) and
the possibility that NSI will try to take their ball and go home, we
have to assume that off-site *NSI* backup reserve balls are going to go
home with the primary game ball.  (Am I taking this analog too far?)
