Adam’s Fun Facts: ABBA, Presidential Trips, Soccer & More!

By Adam Alexander
How did ABBA get their name? Who is the only President in the past century to NOT make an international trip? Where did the world “Soccer” come from to describe football? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:

1. ABBA got its name from the first letters of the four members’ names: Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny, and Anni-Frid. (Wikipedia)

2. Every American president in the past century has made at least one international trip during their presidency with only one exception: Herbert Hoover. (Wikipedia)

3. Shredder, who’s the main bad guy in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, was originally going to be called “The Grater” because the weapons attached to his arms were designed to look like giant cheese graters. (Wikipedia)

4. Even though Americans are the only ones who use the term “soccer” instead of “football”, it’s not actually an American word. It originated in England. (Business Insider)

5. Rachel McAdams, Fred Durst, Sharon Stone, Jay Leno, Seal, and Pink all worked at McDonald’s growing up. (Business Insider)
