An auction house recently came across an 1898 National League document headlined "Special Instructions to Players," outlawing players using indecent language while on the field. Not really a big deal -- except that the document includes examples. (First spotted on BoingBoing.)


This is FUNNY. I can't believe no one else reads and comments on this blog. It is absolutely the finest commentary extant on the sport of kings--no, the sweet science--no, the National Pastime.

Interesting sidelight: the German word for soccer is pronounced exactly like "foosball."
