Why Is A Football Called Pigskin?

Why is a football called a pigskin? And why are sports balls (like this football) fun to draw, ink and watercolor? On the first question, I didn’t know…check out Wiki Answers and the Straight Dope…kinda cool…on the drawing one, it’s just fun to try to capture the feel, the essence of the ball, it’s everything to the ball-sports fanatic. If you like rugby, football, soccer, basketball, baseball…etc. it’s all about the ball…(Sports Illustration #48)
