Well, the game had been fun, although that three-point loss was pretty disappointing for the Chargers. Stupid penalty. Naea glanced over at Brighid's question and grinned lightly. "I used to wonder about that, myself. When American football was being developed, it was originally based off of football.

"The rules started changing; picking up and running with the ball, catching the ball and all that. Soccer was called Association football, which was shortened to 'A-sock'--spelled A-s-s-o-c. Hence why Americans now refer to it as 'soccer'." Naea made a face, blushing lightly (despite her mild sunburn). Well, she hadn't meant to sound like a know-it-all-smartypants, but she felt like she had. She looked down at her tabled hands. "It's, erm, rather interesting what you find in encyclopedias and Google."
