comment What is non-derogatory way of saying “people here are obsessed with sports”?
There is a phrase that is used for distinction: "Be a fan, not a fanatic." It's often stated in rules concerning sportsmanship. Here is an example: iahsaa.org/resource_center/Character_Sportsmanship_Safety/…

comment How do I spell the truncation 'Cas', as in 'Sports Casual/Sports Cas'?
I might write it "Caj" and hope people pronounce it like "Raj". It doens't look right. I'd probably avoid this issue in writing by spelling it out.

comment The meaning of “Trolling around”
@MετάEd The article also points out the the Old Norse word for a mythological monster, where they are often creatures bent on mischief and wickedness. Internet trolls seem to be the at the intersection of the two words, rather than simply being from fishing term.

For the people suggesting "burp", do you possibly mean "urp"?
