    Nice post. This was an interesting little video about an obscure, but important part of a great game.

    Wow!!! I had no idea how they made them,..now I got to get my purse to see if has the little "w"s on it!

    Pretty neat that they all have been working there all those years. Doesn't seem like a big turnover in postions!! (hehee!)

    The guy with the hardest job is the one turning the balls inside out. I can't imagine doing that day in and day out! :blink:

    Yeah, I can't imagine doing any of those jobs day after day.
    How do they keep from getting bored from doing the same thing all day long?
    And it's funny how they get paid, what, 12-18 bucks an hour to make something for millionaires to throw around.
    Sweatshops still exist in America.

    At the end the CEO says it's the only football factory in the world.
    How can that be? Doesn't Spalding make footballs? And don't college teams use Nike footballs?
