Part of the appeal of the FA Cup is the chance to see lesser-known teams potentially upset big-name clubs. But even if you care about this particular competition, you’re probably not paying that much attention until the Premier League teams start playing. We wanted to know if even real soccer fans—the kind that wake up early on a Saturday morning to watch a 9:30 a.m. kickoff at a bar in Brooklyn—could identify some of the smaller teams with quirkier names that have already been eliminated. They could not, but the journey was delightful.
