We need more balls! Has anyone noticed that the "o" in our SportsFilter logo/title is represented by only three balls (baseball, basketball, and soccer)? If you have the skills, show us your balls.

**just tossing out ideas** We could have a tennis ball, the top of a hockey puck, a volleyball (even though I doubt it's ever been discussed here), um, a bowling ball? That's about all I got. Oh, and I have no skills, so I shall keep my balls hidden, thankyouverymuch.

Frisbee? Olympic rings (one prominent, the others behind the letters)? Curling rings? Ship steering wheel (we do talk about sailing)? And I'm a math major, so that should define my skill at artistic endeavours.

- Rugby ball/american football standing on end (this would be more of an upright oval, than a circle, I know) - Badminton shuttlecock looking straight-on with the cork in front and the circle of feathers behind it - Takraw ball: Dang: [images from Google Images, may be copyrighted]

Golf ball. Ooh, and not a frisbee, but a golf disc! It's more of a sport than a leisurely toss in the park anyways (unless we're talking ultimate).

I love the takraw ball. How about some more visual representations. I think we SpoFi-folk will eventually get around to creating some more balls, but we're busy and lazy. We did have the Olympic rings up during the last Olympics. What balls are out on the Internet? (Do people still call this thing the Internet?)

I'd love more balls, but no matter what I do in PhotoShop, I can't make my balls look good. The aliasing around the edge of my balls ends up fuzzy and doesn't look right when placed over a green background. If anyone has any advice on PhotoShopping your balls, let me know.

I think we need more members and more comments than more balls.

Keep your members away from my balls.
