"'Ball man" a giant sculpture comprised of almost 3,000 footballs (that's soccer balls for those of us in the US) designed by Leeds-based Ratcliffe Fowler Design hangs in the atrium of the Carlton Centre shopping mall in downtown Johannesburg."
Very cool work by Nike, ofcoarse. I'm surprised there is nothing like this hanging in Time Square. America's new found love and excitement for football warrants that...no?
Being from a culture that loves everything about football (not me personally), you must excuse how skeptical I am about the citizens actually caring about football. Infact, I may have compared the current "soccer" hysteria with that of a child who gets a new toy, and soon forget about it a few weeks later.
But in the mean time....keep on drinking at those bars.
