Still not as exciting as real football.

What if the Thirteen Colonies had been unsuccessful in their attempts (almost 250 years ago) to gain their independence from Mother England? How different would our world be today?

Down the Rabbit Hole, Part One
Sports

"Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. This is Howard Cosell coming to you live from Redcoat Soldier Field in Chicago, New Liverpool. I'm joined by my good friend, Dandy Don Merideth and we are here to watch tonight's football match between Dallas United and Philadelphia."

"You can blather on all you want with your tea and crumpets there, Howard, but I'm checking out them Dallas Cheerleaders myself."

"Yes, look at them going into the stands, kicking the beejesus out of everyone wearing Manchester U. or Hull City jerseys. Those hooligan ladies love earning their title of football thugs. I haven't seen anyone deliver a better right hook since Cassius Clay defeated Dick Butkus in The Disaster in Lancaster."

"Just a reminder that this game is being sponsored tonight by Trident Sugarless Gum. Remember that four out of five dentists surveyed recommend sugarless gum for their patients who still have teeth."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
