Jan 15th, 2020 : Pedestrianism
At the end of the 19th century when the automobile was a novelty of the rich
It seems there were three types of races, first where the fastest time for a set distance won. The second
where the most distance in a set time period was the winner, the third, like the first, the winner was the
fastest time for a set distance but also a limit on the maximum time allowed. It appears they werenít
free-for-alls, at the top level anyway, but more like an invitational were you had to prove some prowess
in the minors before getting a shot at the big leagues.
This proves once again Americans will watch, and bet on, anything they think their neighbors are watching
or even suspect they want to watch.
Donít risk becoming a social pariah by not watching Milton Berle, Saturday Night Live, or The Game of Thrones.

It's been my experience that about one-fifth of the interweb is Monty Python references.
