IM Minh Le Obliterates a Titled Arena while Soccer Slowly Fades into Obscurity

Annoyingly, soccer is midly acceptable - it stems from the 'soc' part of association football. Association football, though clunky, would be more proper. I suppose what was written was probably the most apt phrasing for the filler element of an uninspired blog post on a chess website.

That's the first sensible thing said all topic.
To specify FOOTBALL originated in London. That is in ENGLAND. Over here we say FOOTBALL. Have you got it yet?

I finally understood what you actually meant. Oh boy and soccer.

The whole world calls it football. So it's football. I still wonder why the author thinks football is wrong. Why am I interested in this anyway?

So much trigger already, add to it the light mode image
