The Ball rolling through China in 2002
Kevin Mitchell, the Guardian’s chief sports writer was so enthralled by the Liverpool v. AC Milan final that he wrote his latest column entitled Magic and hypnotism of the rolling ball based on the question “what is this strange power football has over us?”
One of the answers he provides is that ‘it’s the magic of the rolling ball. You can’t resist it.’ Indeed. Neither can we. That’s what the Spirit of Football has always been about.
I just stumbled across a promo video for the World Cup preparations in Berlin which has a remarkable resemblance to our video from the 2002 trip to Japan and Korea… really nicely (read expensively!) made and worth a look.
Sets the standard for 2006, I guess. Enjoy!
