I have played with many different balls in my time - those that swerve a lot, change direction, fly awkwardly - but this one is definitely the worst of all. It has been intentionally made to suit outfield players and to contribute to a high number of goals at the World Cup.
Let it be ours to be self-reliant amidst hosts of the vacillating real in a generation of triflers true amongst a multitude of shams; when tempted to swerve from principle, sturdy as an oak in its maintenance; when solicited by the enticement of sinners, firm as a rock in our denial.
Look in, and see Christ's chosen saint In triumph wear his Christ-like chain; No fear lest he should swerve or faint; "His life is Christ, his death is gain."john keble
