I think that Fifa’s 2010 World Cup would be a lot more interesting if they played with the ball above. I can only imagine the number of accidents that would occur from tripping over one those golden chains or how many coin imprints would be on the player’s heads after doing multiple headers. One can only dream.

With the 2010 World Cup sadly behind, Nike Sportswear and St. Alfred has gathered ¬†artists, such as Cody Hudson, Mr. Cartoon, and Dzine, to “design” some visually pleasing soccer balls. If you want one for your own they are currently being auctioned off with all proceeds going to Urban Initiatives, a Chicago based program to encourage the youth to be active by extracurricular activities like soccer .
