A rare display of Rampant Purism

I'm not much of a purist about anything, but I have to say that it really annoys me that Gatorade has a commercial airing right now that has an instrumental of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" accompanying footage of soccer.

(I've got to admit that I pretty much find soccer to be about as interesting to watch as the air-drying of oil-based paints. I don't care if the rest of the world is gaga over it; every time I've watched it, I've come away thinking, "How can everybody else be so into this?" I mean, so far as I can tell, The Simpsons pretty much nailed what soccer's like.)
