    It's a banana peel. I just recently took notice. The African one was a pyramid, Russia one a cross, Germany – tampons, Korea – propeller, and before that more pyramids. No wonder I never cared for sports.

    WHAT? What was the point of THIS video?
    Why can't we listen to any of the dialogue? What were they talking about???

    And why didn't we see the official ball spinning just like the ball that was spinning near the end?
