Wilson Footballs

This being bowl week all across the country, folks may be interested in how footballs are made. Wilson, in Ada, Ohio, makes all the NFL footballs.

The one thing that struck me with this video is not so much the manufacturing process, which is interesting to watch, but the fact that all of the workers featured in this video have been doing the same job from anywhere between 20 to 40 years. I think the guy says one gal had been doing her one job in the football making process for 42 years.

Either these dear folks truly love their job or there isn't much else to do in Ada.
