A load of Alberts?

What is wrong with 'the football'?

Quote:
‎'The Albert'! That's what Adidas have announced wil be the name of the London 2012 Olympic Football. The winning name was selected after a public competition after being submitted by Robert Ashcroft from Derbyshire. It's based on cockney rhyming slang - with 'Albert Hall' (one of London's most iconic landmarks) meaning 'ball'.
Can you come up with any appropriate (or inappropriate) names for Olympic sporting equipment?
