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

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