Yeah, I was just thinking the same thing looking at another King's Gambit between the same players. Maybe more appropriate (and sensitive to people who actually suffer from the disease) to label it "Parkinson's Dis-ease". Of course, that's where the word comes from, but it seems to work better here in that form.
