We're not especially creative at naming anything, just look up your local shopping malls and retirement communities

Baseball we touch bases, basketball the goal is the basket, golf is okay I know there's some history and language with that answer but it's still weird…

American football should be renamed to American Rugby, since that's what it resembles (somewhat). Soccer should be renamed to football (as it is globally), since the whole game is played literally with your feet.

My personal favourite is the French game of Pétanque. Just sounds funny off the tongue

Only sports? So waterfall, or sky diving is creative?
