The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo are still in charge of the world but would like to be entertained just like us. They get bored too but I’m pretty sure they are not sports fanatics. But around 1876 they came up with a marvelous idea they were going to let Walter Camp invent a new sport called football.
He got the idea from William Ebb
Ellis who got the idea from the Monte Cristo members of the Order, the
people who create everything. The Order really doesn’t care too much
about sports it’s just that everyone got so tired and fed up of Rugby so
the people of that time stopped attending Rugby games and started
becoming so bored that the people who were around that time started
finding other things to do in their spare time and that included the
tracking down of conspiracies. Some of the most intelligent townspeople
in 1876 figured out part of the conspiracy of Alexander Graham Bell and
his telephone patent that was filed on February 14th, 1876.
problem with his patent was that he did not describe the telephone in
his application and he titled it “Improvements in Telegraphy” without
ever mentioning the word telephone. Before the town’s smart Alec could
figure out that Elisha Gray filed the same day as Bell and had mentioned
the fact that he was the first to invent the telephone, one of the
faithful members of the Order decided that he should popularize football
so he went back and told the other members.
They all came
to a decision that they should get society to watch the football games
to get the townspeople’s mind off of the Order’s little conspiracy
trick. The Order is very good at making observations but they did not
know that football was a sport that stuck throughout the years and into
today. Now they’d like for you to watch college football and look away
from the news.
