The perfectly round Jabulani gets a kicking from NASA
The Jabulani - is it also too big?
Today’s news suggests that when NASA eggheads aren’t building rockets, or figuring out how best to consume a glass of orange squash when you’re floating, they’re chuckling knowingly to themselves, and patronising people who only invent footballs.
In a successful attempt to put some scientific weight behind something that most people had already noticed, NASA have confirmed that the new Adidas Jabulani World Cup football is, in fact, totally rubbish.
As reported in The Mirror, the men with massive craniums have decreed it far too light, and particularly unpredictable when moving at speeds faster than 44mph.
It really makes you wonder… did this man lose his job?
