The Jabulani ball is funky

The root of all evil?

It acts weird, at least according to Caltech aeronautical engineers. I wonder if Adidas knew they could test this stuff before putting the ball on the market…

UPDATE: FIFA finally admitted that something is wrong in the state of Denmark. Not surprisingly, Gigi Buffon wanted to go back to the old black-and-white ball he used as a kid.  In the same article, Jéròme Valcke tries to paint FIFA as responsive: “We’re not deaf. FIFA is not unreceptive about what has been said about the ball.” The prompted a solitary giggle from me.
