Objects to game’s title

To the editor:

On the back of the November 3/4 Finger Lakes weekly edition of the Catholic Courier is a photograph with a caption saying it is of youth playing “Jesus Ball” at a Catholic Scouting Retreat in the diocese. According to the caption, “Jesus Ball” is a modified version of soccer. What modifications could have made calling the game “Jesus Ball” not a use of the Lord’s name for trivial matters, which is forbidden by the second commandment?
