This semantic anecdote allows you to recognize that "soccer" is based in bullshit. "Soccer" is ugly. America's young, elite athletes want to play American football and basketball, not "soccer." In order to attract young prospective talent and one day advance deeper into the World Cup tournament, Americans need to obliterate the word "soccer." The ugliest word in the world needs to be linguistically erased from the American lexicon. Let's get rid of the word. Soccer moms, you are no longer a soccer mom, you are a football mom. It's not sock-er, or soccer, or sokker, it's FOOTBALL!
