7.29: Tim Jahnigan on Chronicle Live
In front of the earthquake has some around because we're gonna. Look at the latest state of the art soccer ball what is known. As a one no world football and it is -- -- -- soft. Yes well -- -- -- we call it the world's most durable ball OK the it's the ultimate all terrain ball and it was -- inspiration really was forward. Children in war zones and refugee camps living in harsh conditions. The most played sport on planet is soccer. And -- are the largest segment of that of that game but the balls that they get given by all these wonderful NGOs that are doing this incredible work. To keep them involved in sports. They don't last very long anywhere from hours too few days so. When I learned of that watching a documentary. And and I knew about this material. I put the two together and had a little bit of an inspiration but it. Didn't really. Get a chance to become a reality until. A good a friend of mine who it's an entertainer named stating he said I've heard that yes you might have heard him he had. We worked together on a couple of different projects and we were having just a conversation about children anyway came up. And when he when I told them about the idea he just the gist of it basically his response was if you can do it -- pay for city paid for guarantee. That's fabulous and ask for the name one world football come from -- -- great song one world one world is enough for all of all of us when my favorite songs were great and I am and play its native of closed cell. Fault that is Chris that would it is yes that's what makes it. I'm calling it indestructible. You're saying not quite destructive but -- sort of alliance change in Johannesburg. Yes we -- close to the figure destructive voted. Yeah well there again they've been through the years ahead of disease said yeah in the I destruct mode yet good luck at Triton our line he'll he'll be gone within five minutes as well after the second day. We fixed it back and it was still in great shape and -- yet you could see of course teeth marks and so on but. He played to the point of exhaustion because normally he would go through six to ten balls in half an -- press and a he had one ball for two days and it's great Richard. Laurinaitis came back from London and before that you were in and you are desperately entity of the World Cup and met with fifa officials so. What are your ultimate goal with this talk about I -- could salmon the earthquake shoes in the MLS could it -- have enough specs to be. -- game ready ball for there may be a future World Cup maybe maybe sometime in the future but really. But we're we're focusing on and on and getting it to as many children as possible so hard you know every child in every war -- should have one of their own. And there's all these great NGOs already. Working with corporate sponsors everybody from the the big for you know big sports manufacturers and other corporate sponsors. They're buying the balls and getting them into these places we just wanna be the ball. And it's the game. And -- great organizations that are changing the lives we just wanna make their their jobs easier to do. So our dreams to give weight to it and distribute and facilitate. But the distribution of a million miles in the next three years are actually brought what are your one world football's for us to look at it's that's the big blue want as our audience the difference. And the more traditional volley but the balls that are used her little talking vultures around the world well yet this is a good example of this is a very high quality example of what. Huge amount of children including -- one of our great Tucker's day. You know -- when he was so -- a child that he had to play with what is known as a -- this is very common. And I traded this for one of ours to some you've done to children. Children from Uganda. And so this ball is as well it instantly solving the solution of making it durable and someone. It it completely reinvent how balls are made so this win breathes it has air valves that allow it to -- just for temperature and altitude so that gets driven over by a car. -- -- -- And for example my son. At home decided to sacrifice this for the show that this is pulling out of -- -- -- -- -- -- try this at home and that is and on but now. It doesn't take much to. I hear -- a sack I -- sex religion persona so it's done that this decadent but see this one you know you can do that. It can resist -- anyway but the if that happened that would be the end of that this one -- -- isn't. Bounce anymore but. This one's still it -- against student actually get there about every set to go reckless sharp descent take a look at NC side as the -- it is really agonizing wait though. Yeah yes and we probably will never end up getting an official. -- stamp of approval because the testing criteria. It's has yet to be. Did created thickened. Test the ball that never need to pump has no preference side and doesn't absorb water which is part of how -- and. Altitude because I in light of what happened in the World Cup -- damage happened on a conversation with a new indeed is heavily any ball. I mean it just seemed like we change the way the game was played. This year so and they may be all the soccer got to look at the new ball we'll see -- -- -- over that if you play within your league now -- he noticed that especially on corners of the ball or soaring and you -- -- very active to very lively bond we've tied it since the start of the season so. I'm very -- her by now but for the world cup of other teams in Europe in those players are used to the ball so there are many complaints but. It's always adjusted and investment area yeah I don't know cause different feel and well it's it's also one of the first balls it's made in a true round -- effect. All other balls that are at hand -- the panels are a series of flat plains that intersect so there's no truly round ball until the job -- They've come off of one hit ball for the world waterworld is enough for all of us -- -- soccer ball. There's enough for Arsenal yet and so what what -- the way that the general public can also participate in this is that they you know we're on our website. -- for everyone we sell. We donate when -- well the aggressive 3999 I guess is the president -- fifty. So I get one for my boy somebody else throughout the rules limiting for somebody who deserves when it's not -- thank you so much for your time deadline for the other. Sam thank you for dropping -- you got Shiite accessing analog I hope you guys play.
