EURO 2016 ended with a beautiful Portuguese victory over/in France, but its soccer ball is still seen in other games, and will be remembered for some time, and so will be my previous post, I hope 🙂 I thought there would be no other ball in my life, not for a while anyway, but a fateful walk by a sports store proved me wrong:
new (?) Admiral ball on my balcony — Thessaloniki, 7/28/16
Why do I like this ball? Well, the ends of its threefold axes are reminiscent of the fevernova, even though its six ‘feet’ bring us right back to the right ball, that is the teamgeist — hope you share my enthusiasm!
[Note: in the case of the fevernova each threefold axis has one ‘blank’ end and one ‘propeller’ end, with all four propellers ‘turning’ the same way; in this new ball each threefold axis has two ‘propeller’ ends, so there are eight ‘propellers’ in total, with four of them ‘turning’ one way and four the other way — a direct effect of reflection! (Quick question for you: do the ‘propellers’ at the end of the same threefold axis ‘turn’ the same way or opposite ways?)]
