Evolution of a Ball

Like most cool people, I’ve been watching a lot of World Cup since it kicked off on Friday.  With a lot of skilled players shooting wide of the goal, the commentators have been speaking quite a bit about how the new ball isn’t as good/the same as previous ones.

Well, I don’t blame them.  While the Mexico 1970 ball is the one we all grew up with as a kid, playing soccer in P.E., the image below shows an incredible evolution of something.  Sort of makes you wonder:

  1. Why did it take them this long to figure out how to design a ball?
  2. What other sports could change their ball design?

P.S.  Go England!!
