      Kenny, one day when you become one of the most successful and greatest coaches with millions of fans this ball will cost a fortune!!! That ball was won in a juggling competition! Pretty historic moment!! If it weren't for the hole in the ball, you would lose the ball somewhere in soccer fields! Now it's stays with you at your home!!! :-))
