Goldenball: not as gold as we'd been led to believe

Remember that post I just did about remembering the football boot-shaped sausages? This is a similar post: remember the story about how the World Cup final will be played with a golden ball - well here's a piccy (AP/Jan Bauer) of said ball, otherwise known as adidas Teamgeist Berlin. Click on it to view full-size.

I thought it would be gold all over, like the woman in Goldfinger, so I'm quite disappointed really. The man in the picture is Franz Beckenbauer, who I'm pretty sure is the most diplomatic man in the world. He's so diplomatic he should be the next U.N secretary general.
