The Most Destructive Ball In The Universe



The Nike T-90 Ascente, official ball for the English Premier League. Dont think old George has played any sports in his life but his legacy sure has seeped onto the sports arena on a larger scale. Who woulda thunk that Nike designers would finally get inspired by Palpatine's ball of destruction? I would like to think that the 3 bands around the ball are also inspired by the lasers/death beam thingy that forms the Death Star's destructive planet killing weapon.

Does George even know what an offside is? Do geeks even play sports? Would anyone below 20 years old even recognise the Death Star?



The Death Star ver.1.0. The original inspiration.
