This may be my most divisive list yet. Inspired by
  1. Football
    There is literally not one single good reason to call this sport football. It makes no logical sense. First of all, it's not a ball. It's an egg shape. Second of all, the egg is handled by the players' hands 99% of the time. The few times it is actually kicked, a player has to be brought on the field specifically for that purpose. If anything, it should be called 'handegg,' or, more accurately: 'American rugby,' which it clearly is.
  2. Soccer
    This sport is actually called football. It's called football basically everywhere on Earth, besides America. The ball (which is actually a ball) is handled by the players' feet 99% of the time. Now that is a solid reason to call it football, in my humble opinion.
