Check out this video from Wilson on the making of NFL game footballs. (Scroll down to the bottom of the column, as my attempt to link direct to the video failed abjectly. My link-fu is exceptionally weak.)
Y’all may have noted that compared to JC, I’m actually good at this going Galt business. School starts again on Monday, (for my 10 y.o., not me) which ought to improve my posting performance, but I thought this little bit might amuse.
Most impressive to me: these are old fashioned skilled craft jobs on display. Shortest work stint featured at the Ohio factory in which Wilson makes its NFL-acceptable footballs was 28 years. And check out Emmit at 2:17. There is a man who works hard for the money. He’s been doing it for 35 years. I’d give myself ten minutes, fifteen tops, before screaming “Uncle!”
I guess this is an open thread, though mostly it’s just an excuse to start with the side of a cow.
