The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes, look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

When I was 6 our cable sports channel in Canada would air English football every Saturday morning: the first I remember watching was a First Division match between Leeds United and Luton Town. Twenty-odd years later I remember it was between those two teams but cannot recall who won or indeed why it didn't make me hate the sport entirely because come on, being introduced to football through Leeds?

Much more vividly and happily, three years later I was in the stands for our notoriously awful national team to draw Brazil in a pre-WC friendly, and I think that's what made me love the game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckz6hzutukA
